So like i said in my previous thread,I was planning on giving the Carder Method a try.I decided it would be better if I mixed a batch of paint with the SDM.
Before I do that though I have a few inquires related to the paints I am using and the recipe of the SDM.
1)So I am going to be using Daler-Rowney Georgian Cadmium yellow pale and Burnt Umber.I know this wasnt recommended but it is a lot cheaper than The W&N,and get a lot more paint(ml) for less price.Which works for me.
2)I have always used Flake white,and I dont plan on changing...But then I have been reading around on the forum and I found some people having a few issues with how fast it dries...Does anyone have any recommendations or changes in the Medium for flake white?
3)I am using the alizarin crimson and french ultramarine from the Van Gogh brand..amazing pigments and dry slowly on the palette itself.Also I have ordered the Winsor And Newton Crimson because i will be running out of the original paints...
Up until now my approach to painting has been very dis-organised..though in the end it has worked pretty well for me as i end up putting more time correcting value and so on.So this will be quite a big deal for me and I dont want to leave any stone un turned.
As I will be working from photos(still havent found any that appeals to me..
)..I wont be needing the color checker at this moment...
I hope anyone can help me with the medium recipe..and if anyone has worked with the paints I am about too.I would really appreciate it.
Have a great day!
