Die Blaue Vier

Following on the heels of Die Brücke was Der Blaue Reiter, German for “The Blue Rider.” While the Die Brücke was being recognized as the first formal group of Expressionists, Der Blaue Reiter was forming. The group can be traced to as early as 1903, when Wassily Kandinsky showed the painting of a naked blue man riding a blue horse. In 1911 Kandinsky and Franz Marc founded Der Blaue Reiter to explore their ideas of emotion-based creativity in the visual, written and musical arts. Kandinsky pushed the limits of abstraction and pioneered non-objective art by choosing other abstract ideas, such as music and feeling, as the subjects of his painting. In 1912 a show of Der Blaue Reiter was mounted and included artists Marc, Kandinsky, August Macke, Henri Rousseau, Robert Delaunay and Paul Klee. All artists had a spiritual or mystical aspect in their paintings, and all urged creative freedom of expression.

I love these pallets. I have one for my warm yellows, 1 for cool yellows and you can write on the 2 big wells with the colors that are above ;if you use a woodless graphite pencil, it won't rub off easily. This way I know the exact color and color bias for my red, blues, yellows, violets, greens, and oranges. I find I only need one for my white, black/grey tints and earth tone water colors. For stains, I clean off with olive oil then follow with soap and water so oil doesn't get into my watercolor pigments.

I love this glue; I make wigs for a living and this dries clear and has a very strong hold.

I have been using grumbacher gesso for years, I have tried many other brands, but absolutely nothing compares to Grumbacher's. Give it a try; I think you will be hooked.
