Red Poles--Love it, must HAVE it. it's incredibly beeauutifulll!!!

The light areas with their broken color produces a great effect of swarming movement. Exciting to the eye!

Julian, this painting absolutely vibrates! It is incredible! You have outdone yourself, here. I just can't stop looking at it. What a wonderful treat! I was wondering, and forgive me if you have already answered this before, but what palette do you use out-of-doors? I am going on a plein air painting trip in a couple of weeks, and was wondering what colors are your staples. I have a tendency to take too many tubes of paint with me, and I want to travel lighter. Thanks again for this gorgeous painting today! All my best to you.

Ouf. A real step up, I think. Of course, you do keep stepping up. On a stairway to something or other. Fab. Swarming, yes. Exactly the right word.

Magic Julian,
vous �tes le meilleur ambassadeur de la Provence !
Le Foreign Office doit �tre fier de vos services et la Provence reconnaissante.
Congratulations !

Thanks everyone.

Merillee, I use a pretty standard palette based around : Raw Umber, Ultramarine, Alizaron Crimson, Burnt Sienna and Ochre with Cadmium Red and Yellow and Titanium White . I also like to have a small tube of Corail Orange and a couple of greens, Bright Green Lake (Micheal Harding) and Hookers Green for those Pines. I usually carry a Black, Lemon Yelllow and Ceruleum and a Pthalo Blue as well.

excellent work Julian!

This one is exceptionally lovely!

Julian, Could you please say how much the auctioned paintings go for? Thanks.

Fanny, the winning bid/bidder are shown on the auction link, you need to register but it only takes a few seconds and commits you to nothing.


I can't tell you how much your paintings inspire me. As I click on your mail each day it takes my breath away..each one as incredible as the other. I am an aspiring painter and you keep me engaged. I have never won an auction. However, perhaps someday. I can never decide which one is better anyway. They are all fabulous. Do you ever give workshops?

Thanks, Julian! I had decided on a similar palette and am glad to get your confirmation. I tend to get a bit carried away with all the luscious tubes of colors that are out there, and then end up with fifty tubes of paint to carry around. Really silly, actually when you can mix any colors with the basics. I have not heard of Corail Orange, but will look it up. Am off to Death Valley, California to paint. Wonderful place to work if you are ever in the area. Thank you so much for the info. and also for the stunning paintings you have been doing lately. They are an inspiration and bring me joy every day!

Dear Julian,

Of the daily painters websites that I've visited recently, your's is certainly one of the most inspiring.

I am embarking on a project of having a web site designed for an online gallery showing the work ( daily paintings ) of 100 artists from New Mexico ( USA ). After I recover from the initial expenses such as the web designer, legal fees, etc., I hope to purchase some of your work.

If you have any suggestions on how to make the web site successful for the artists, I will eagerly await them.
