Anna's Bouquet in 3 Transparent Primary Pigments
with Copal Medium

11"x15" Oil Copal on Linen Panel

Anna is my student that came to Maui to study, she is a new gifted artist. This is her 2nd oil painting. We will be studying the copal painting technique. It dries quickly and can be re-dissolved like mastic. It is the most blendable medium in oils.

Garrette Copal Medium. I never liked the brands of copal I tried until I tried Ron Garrett's (ron@garrettcopal.com) there wasn't enough control. His brand painted beautifully.

Here is her study.

Real Color Wheel


First we painted the Real Color Wheel to teach how to mix any color just using the 3 primary pigments, Indian Yellow O/s from Old Holland, Quinacridone Magenta from Daniel Smith and Thalo Blue from Grumbacher. Here are our RCW paintings. This is my 909th painting on Maui.



Next we painted a still life with those three colors. Using a brush to draw with, here is my simple start from 3 marker points.

Don Jusko, start.


It took 3.5 hours to get this far.

Don Jusko half way finished.


 Six hours later we were both finished our paintings, here is mine. 12-29-04.

Don Jusko finished.


 Anna finished. This is her 3rd oil painting.

Water Colors,
Daniel Smith New Gamboge PY153 Nickel Dioxine is the best Indian Yellow O/s pigment.
Daniel Smith Quinacridone Magenta PV202 is more to the cyan side.
Grumbacher Thalo Crimson PV19 is more to the warm side.
I don't know why they won't use the most stable and magenta matching pigment PR122.
