Sennelier Rive Gauche

Adrienne Parker reports on new fine oil colours for artists – and enjoys experimenting with colour and technique

Detail from Pink Flower Girl, Rive Gauche Fine Oil Colours and mixed media on wood, 32x24in. (81x61cm). Here I wanted to work with pastel shades, and pink in particular. It is always interesting to see what a colour looks like when white is added. A perfect opportunity presented itself in the shape of this flower. The flower is part of this mixedmedia painting, which had to be painted on wood that was primed with gesso. I included the copper in my mixes to see what else this iridescent colour could do. The techniques applied to the flower were dry brush and careful painting with premixed shades (with a little extra linseed oil). I was able to mix the most beautiful colours, ranging from the deeper purple-pinks – the phthalo turquoise really stood out here – to the warmer pinks where yellow ochre, copper and orange played a role. I don’t usually use such an expansive palette, but what a great opportunity to compare so many variations.
