Here's my initial palette. I use one of the biggest brushes I have as I have a (nasty) habit of getting lost in detail without seeing the overall painting. Burnt Sienna mixed with Cadmium Yellow Light & a touch of Titanium White are made into a thin wash. I only use M. Graham oil paints as they're non-toxic and I can clean up using just walnut oil and a bit of green turps. Coming up - tools of the trade.
