Selection of Acrylic colors for beginners by Prosenjit Roy...

These notes will be useful for those like me....Thanks to Prosenjit Roy...!

 

 

Oh that's wonderful, it would be great to meet you. Well Camel is what I've been mostly using, although there are other costlier foreign brands like Liquitex, Daler Rowney (love their Cadmium Red). Local company Pidilite has brought out an acrylic range, and I like their Burnt Umber a lot. But I think the minimum quantity is 100 ml which may be considered expensive by some, compared to…

Please enquire if Pidilite is also available in smaller tubes, I'm not sure maybe they are. The shop I had bought them from only had 100 ml pots. So do buy what is most cost-effective for you. What I've written below is not an endorsement for any brand, just a practical account on what I'm familiar with.

Oh that's wonderful, it would be great to meet you. Well Camel is what I've been mostly using, although there are other costlier foreign brands like Liquitex, Daler Rowney (love their Cadmium Red). Local company Pidilite has brought out an acrylic range, and I like their Burnt Umber a lot. But I think the minimum quantity is 100 ml which may be considered expensive by some, compared to Camel's 40 ml tubes. So for now, you may go for Camel although they don't have all the colors I like.

But before you buy anything else, do buy a 100ml pot of Acrylic Gloss medium. This is essential. For the mixing palette, you may bring one of those microwave-able sealed containers, round or box-like - sounds ridiculous, but the inside of their flexible plastic lids can be used as palette. Since acrylic dries very fast, you can invert the bowl/container part on the lid and seal it, which will keep the paint workable while not in use.

Colors - you may buy a few of the basic colors, in 40ml artist variety tubes. At the very least, go for each of the following colors -

1. Titanium white
2. Scarlet lake
3. Prussian blue
4. Lemon Yellow or Permanent yellow medium

This is a severely limited palette. Mixing of the above will give you some although not all the colors needed for figure painting. So, in addition I'd suggest you also buy

5. Yellow ocher
6. Burnt umber (especially this)
7. Burnt Sienna

The colors in the first list can't be mixed to produce violet-ish, or 'cool' hues. So if you need that, you may also buy the following, although its not absolutely essential for the workshop.

8. Ultramarine blue (hard to get, probably out of supply)
9. Permanent Rose
10. Olive green (makes nice blacks with prussian blue and/or burnt umber)

I hope this will be helpful. If you want you may also share it with others. Thank you for attending the workshop.

Kind regards,
Prosenjit
