A Curated, Limited Palette
The Explore Palette includes just six colors: Transparent Yellow Medium, Permanent Red Light, Phthalo Blue, Yellow Ochre, Quinacridone Rose, Payne’s Grey. Every color has a high degree of transparency, lightfastness, and is certified non-toxic.
Working within a limited palette can be freeing—you’re not overwhelmed by too many choices, and you’re pushed to explore color mixing in new ways.
Clean Mixes, Earthy Tones
The primary triad of Transparent Yellow Medium, Quinacridone Rose, and Phthalo Blue create clean mixes around the color wheel, while the neutrals produce a range of earth tones, from grey to green to ochre.
Create a spectrum of browns and greys by mixing compliments, such as red/green, yellow/purple, and blue/orange, and Payne’s Grey will tone down hues.
Also available: the Explore Palette Plus
The Explore Palette Plus is an expanded, 12-color version of the Explore Palette, adding six additional useful colors for painting quickly on the go, including a range of browns, warm and cool blues, violet, and sap green.
