I love your work Antii. These waterscapes are a joy to view.
Your book looks wonderful. I did a BLURB book of my own work as well.
Thanks for sharing your talents.

Thank you very much Rae!
Blurb is a wonderfull invention, specially for artists :)

Another beautiful painting.
May I ask you what color palette you use? (I'm always interested in other artists palettes)

Antti Rautiola said...

Hi Erik,
Here is the palette I usually use nowadays:

(Rembrants and Van Cochs)
Zinc white
Lemon yellow
Cadmium red
Yellow ochre
Transparent oxide red
Ultramarine blue deep

Premixed colors:
Light blue - Which is ultramarine+white with a touch of red
Black - Transparent oxide red + ultramarine

Thanks Antti,
What do you like better about zinc White compared to titanium white?
I guess it's more transparent but there are the stories that it is more prone to cracking so I've always steered away from it because of that reason.
