I've a great respect for Mr. Kinstler. I know from his book that he uses chrome green oxie. But when I saw his palette in the workshop which you participated in I found it to be sap green. Are you sure he uses sap green? Why do not you write an article on the workshop which you attended for him?

Thanks a lot.

Thanks for your comment!

Here is the materials list for the workshop:

Cadmium Yellow – Pale or Medium
Raw Sienna
Cadmium Red Light
Cerulean Blue
Ultramarine Blue
Burnt Sienna
Burnt Umber
Viridian or Chrome Oxide Green

However, I am pretty sure he used sap green that day. One of the monitors prepared the palette for Mr. Kinstler and I know there was also a blue (thalo) that he didn't like on the palette, which was quickly scraped off and replaced.

Thanks for the details. What oil medium does he usually use?

Hi Brad,

I will have to find my notes as I don't recall at the moment.

He does use Sap Green. In his video, where he paints his friend Van Bernhard, sap green was on his palette.
