I recently just jumped head first into oils and attempted to do a little research on what supplies and mediums and the type of palette I needed to begin working with.
The colors I have as of now are Windsor & Newton:
cadmium red medium
ultramarine green shade
cadmium yellow pale hue
Any insight on whether these color choices are appropriate for a basic palette would be great. I do realize that everyone has their preferences but I still seek on getting some feedback from someone who has had more experience than me.
The type of linseed oil i have is the boiled linseed oil from the hardware store. I know there are many types of linseed oils such as raw, refined, cold-pressed, stand, etc. but I am not completely sure if I need to go back out and purchase something other than the boiled linseed oil I have. I also got turpenoid, which is a substitute of turpentine so hopefully that will work fine without the odor. As for speeding up the drying process I got Japan Drier. I think it would be suitable to use at a minimum to speed up my drying process but I am not sure.
I am hoping by posting this I could get some help or suggestions on whether or not the color choices are something you would use on a regular basis, and if I am missing something obviously important in a palette please let me know. I am also curious if the type of linseed oil and drier I purchased would suit me just fine due to the price I got them at.(cheap for the size)
Any help would be greatly appreciated because I have no experience with oils and the other mixtures. Due to my lack of experience I was hoping to draw some information from some of you so I can take back something if needed. Thanks!
