NEW Mijello Trucolor Neutral Grey Painting Palettes

Tonal palettes that will change your painting forever — See colors just as they will appear on your canvas!

We are so excited here at Jerry's Artarama that the new line of Mijello TruColor Neutral Grey Palettes have come into stock! This is such a revolutionary line of palettes, and we're sure they will change your painting method as soon as you try them out. 3 styles are available: the Ellipse XL, the Artelier Airtight, and the Fredi Weber Tray — one for any painter in acrylics or oils!

Like most of the Mijello palettes, TruColor palettes are made from exceptionally strong, impact and solvent-resistant ABS plastic — the same stuff that is used to make construction hardhats and the like — so you know they'll last. The major advantage of TruColor palettes, however, is of course their unique, true middle grey coloring: the perfect tone for achieving lifelike color mixes!

Sure, your canvas may start out as a blank, white surface, but it won't stay that way for long: why mix your colors on a blank white palette?  White surfaces cast reflections and shadows that affect the appearance of the colors mixed upon them. What looks like a nice dark color on a white palette may turn out to be a muddy mess on a toned canvas. Using a neutral grey palette virtually eliminates this issue! Know immediately if a color is too light or too dark right on the palette: don't risk ruining your painting by applying the wrong color.

 

Aside from being the ideal color-mixing surface, Mijello TruColor Palettes are also the easiest palettes to clean! Let acrylic paints dry on the surface and they peel right off like a window-cling. Oil paints can be wiped away with turpentine or mineral spirits — without staining the palette! In fact, you can use the Artelier style palette to store acrylics for days without drying out, and by wrapping the palette in plastic wrap and putting it in the freezer, you can keep oil paints fresh almost indefinitely!

Check out this product demo for Mijello TruColor Neutral Grey Palettes:

So really, is it any wonder we're excited? When it comes to painting in acrylics or oils, we've finally found the perfect palette! Mijello TruColor Palettes have everything we're looking for: a neutral grey tone for perfect color mixes, ABS plastic construction for durability, an easy-clean surface that doesn't stain, and three different palette styles to choose from. Pick one out for yourself today, we're sure you'll love it just as much as we do!

Congratulations to Dinah Langsjoen, our August Artist of the Month

When I was younger, which seems an odd thing to say for a 24 year old, I always said I was going to be an artist because I simply loved to create. It’s a beautiful and honest answer, but I’ve since realized that for

me there is more to it. When I am lost sleeve deep in paint for hours upon hours of creating, I realize that I am an artist because of being able to escape into my own blissful world. Art becomes a practice on happiness and fulfillment, where I am in charge of each stroke and each held in breath to stabilize my hand. I am able to choose the level of focus that each painting deserves, and thus each painting gets to show me how much I’ve grown. I give to Art, but Art reciprocates kindly.

Recently I have started to discover my abilities through abstract. I remember a particular painting that was going to be for a friend of mine. She told me what colors she was interested in, but allowed no more input. I was so nervous about doing this, about not being able to satisfy what she was looking for, so I asked her about what was going on in her life. She gushed about a new man in her life and how happy he was making her. I channeled that energy and excitement into my painting and tried to think solely on her happiness and how thrilled she was about him. I sometimes feel like a sponge who soaks up the emotions of my patrons and then twists them out on canvas. It’s beautiful, really, to be able to be so conscientious of someone’s life and to produce something that rings so true to them. When I am creating for others, I lose myself by empathizing with my paints. I envision my paintings to be an embrace between me and my patron, a moment locked in color and swirl that sings to the both of us about being understood visually. These creations are my brains way of telling my hands that this is what it FEELS like to see an emotion, a story in oil or acrylic that captures those thoughts and feelings that can’t be expressed through words.

I value all who create and cannot deny the desire to explore my skills within the realm of hyperrealism, impressionism, et al! My schooling at UW-Madison left me with a degree in Art History and has shown me that everything can be beautiful, unique and appreciated. I wish to encourage others with the Creativity Bug to explore daily, and not be discouraged by age, technical skill, nor experience! Emerge!
