Today I switched all the colors on my palette to a comnpletely new set. I thought it might be fun to shake things up a bit! Here they are.....unbleached titanium, warm gray, cool grey, indian yellow, burnt sienna, cerulean blue, cadmium red and rose lake, plus white. I generally resist using tube grays preferring to mix my own from what's on my palette. But today I decided to forget they were grays and treat them as full fledged colors, the cool gray standing in as a blue and the warm gray standing in as a yellow. It was very interesting to think like that and use both of these grays when mixing colors. Sopme very interesting colors emerged and I'm pleased with the result. Enjoy!
