Violet, Permanent Violet, Horizon Blue, Turquoise Blue, Antwerp Blue (WN), Indanthrene Blue (DR), Anthraquinone Blue (MG), Indigo (WN), Bamboo Green, Shadow Green, Marine Blue, Viridian (S), Olive Green, Neutral Tint, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Imidazolone Brown, Gold Ochre (DV), Green Gold (DV), Naples Yellow (WN). I am currently playing with these colors and testing mix combinations etc...already drawing some conclusions, but it's too early to tell for sure...the above piece is my homage to Vermeer and a test run for the new palette. (All are Holbein unless otherwise indicated) ( DV DaVinci, S Sennelier, MG M.Graham, WN Winsor Newton, R Rembrandt, DR Daler Rowney)

I love your painting. I just saw a documentary on Vermeer's possible technique. It's called 'Tim's Vermeer". It's in limited release here but if you can find it in your area, I highly recommend it. Google the title to find out about it. It's really fascinating.
