Old Master Palette - Dagnan-Bouveret

"Orpheus's Sorrow"

Just like any other artist, I tend to get very comfortable with a certain choice of colors for my painting palette. To keep things fresh however I force myself to experiment from time to time with other colors. That's when I try to look for paints used by the old master.

The palette of artist Pascal Jean Dagnan Bouveret (1852-1929) was listed  on the Web Art Academy and looks interesting.
