Or you can substitute some or all of these colors with pigments of similar names (listed below) should you already have some or are unable to get a hold of Rublev colors. The selected list is however preferable as it is an integral part of my working palette and it has been selected for paint handling qualities and quick drying time so that your progress in the workshop may run smoothly without the added difficulty of having to work over still wet or tacky paint. You will notice the high number of earth colors, umbers and leads. The oils that bind these pigments and that will be used as a medium also exemplify quick drying times.
