Zuzka Vaclavik generously shared with me two palettes -- one conventional and one less expected. The latter consists of shards that she collected on the beach in Naples.
She says, "Often times, I will find little fragments of objects to come up with a palette in my pieces. For example, a lot of these shards I painted into my pieces for the [current] show at Emily Amy Gallery. They provided a lot of the color information in those works, so I consider them my palette too."
The more traditional version, below, is on a new type of palette paper that can be occasionally switched out.
