After what started out as a peaceful hobby, Claybord artist Jim Musil has found much success sharing his paintings on social media. He’s found it works better to just mix a little yellow and black. The most important color he uses is probably quinacridone/nickel azo gold from golden. Because he paints with loose strokes, scumbling, and glazes, this red/orange/yellow color has a big influence over everything that comes on top of it.

“To me, painting is like a puzzle – you have to scrutinize every element and place them in the correct relation to each other,” Musil said.
