ignescent:

This is a true thing, and yet - a historian I once knew said the bits of history they treasure most are not the memos of war or the notices of state, because most of the time, they have those. They are missing the shopping lists, the recipes, the notes on just what the heck the herb looked like and what was planted in the garden. In the grand scheme of things, the battles will be remembered by millions, but what will be treasured is the ephemera that survived. If we found a trivial journal of an ordinay life from 500 years ago, we would be thrilled.

eightyonekilograms:

The paralyzing fear of writing something in a blank journal is magnified tenfold when it’s one of those leatherbound ones with cotton paper pages. It feels unworthy to put anything in it that isn’t the diary of your expedition thousands of miles from civilization, with sketches of the mysterious artifacts you found along the way.

Also, after you finish writing in it, you should hand it to some stranger, whisper “please…someone has to know” and then die on the spot, or what is even the point.

So - write whatever thoughts and scribbles and shopping lists you need to mark down, list the chores and the trials of life. (And if you’re bored, invent an ingredient for your favorite dish, speak of it often, but never ever draw it, photograph it, or mention exactly what it tastes like)

Artists Materials - Palette of Rembrandt van Rijn - Natural Pigments

Rembrandt’s paintings are dominated by a limited selection of pigments—lead white, bone black, natural earth pigments, such as ochers, siennas and umbers; other pigments are regularly used but these are his staples. His palette consisted of the following pigments:

  • Azurite = Copper blue. Phthalo gs, probably.
  • Smalt = Crushed cobalt glass. Looks like gritty Phthalo red shade.
  • Lead-tin yellow = Very yellow yellow. Benzo medium or so. Maybe cad yellow medium?
  • Yellow ocher = Dull weak pale brown-yellow.
  • Red ocher = Red iron oxide.
  • Vermilion = Orange-red. Equivalent is cad red or pyrrole scarlet.
  • Madder lake = Coagulated blood red. Bluish. A redder alizarin hue.
  • Carmine lake = Deep, pretty, ink-like red. Literally shellac red.
  • Raw Sienna = Glowy, red leaning ochre-yellow.
  • Burnt Sienna = Flat brownish-red.
  • Raw umber = Green-yellow-brown. Perfect gray with white.
  • Burnt umber = Thick plain brown.
  • Cassel earth = Transparent, gritty, deep black-brown. Aka Van dyke brown. Grittyness comes from actual peat moss. Add a bit of pumice to black-brown, or use my ink, which is granulating.
  • Brown ocher = Brown iron oxide, usually with other shit too. Looks like lighter version of burnt umber.
  • Lead white = Stiff yellowish white. Might be approximated with ti + ti buff.
  • Bone black = Transparent black. Much more dense in oil than acrylic, but still less blue than carbon/charcoal.
