Many people send me messages about my paint palette and what colours I use, so I thought I’d do up a video for you.

I separate my paints by 3 categories: transparent, staining & granulating.

So any pigment I have is falls into a yes or no state for those categories – then I’ve done my best to group them together in their categories by chroma.

The picture above is my new, clean palette reference guide that I’ve taped into the lid of my palette so even I can be reminded of which paint is in which well.

You can watch the full video on YouTube.
