I want to get into OP. Seems like senn are the best. I want to get the grande colors.

What colors do you recommend for the first 10-15. Is it better to get a set? There is a jerry local store that has open stock. Or is it better to try the small size first?

Do you plan to work big? I think especially if you want to work big, the bottom layers should be harder pastels, because otherwise it gets hard to layer pretty fast. Senns aren't only more expensive, they also wear faster. A set of Grande Senn seems expensive lol. Also kinda like with soft pastels, you want a bigger color selection. But a Grande White is definitely worth it and useful.

I started with a 48 set of Mungyo soft artist and a 48 set of Sennelier, they work very well together, complementary palettes too.
