This is a swatching video of Schmincke’s new collaboration palette with New Zealand abstract artist Evan Woodruffe – known for using bold and vibrant colour. It contains 9 half pan single pigmented colours in a compact palette. If we ignore the marketing title “Ultimate Mixing Set”, this is a rather wonderful palette. All 9 colours are less common colours among Schmincke’s other premade palettes. Only two colours are repeated compared to even the 48 signature set. The 9 colours are standout and unique in their own way. Four of them are granulating pigments which enables you to create mixes with a trendy granulated look. This makes a great addition for someone working with only a limited basic palette.
As an “Ultimate Mixing Set”, the colour selection is not your typical core mixing colours. Arguably, it could be seen as a modern CMY triad along with a nice selection of other colours. Then, the only thing puzzling me is the choice of mixing yellow. Turner’s Yellow has an opacifying character in mixes that often leads to an undesirable chalky look. In contrast, a mid-yellow like Nickel Azo Yellow PY150 with Quinacridone Magenta and Phthalo blue, would have resulted in a more compatible harmonic choice for a transparent high intensity triad. That being said, as there are 9 extra spaces to personalise, it can certainly become one’s own ultimate customised palette. Therefore, the name is somewhat misleading, but the palette is a joy.
Hope my video helps some of you if you are considering it. Enjoy life one beautiful colour at a time!
