Thank you sidbledsoe. This is exactly the kind of answers I was hoping for.

Your painting is beautiful and I like your palette but Gerorge Cherepov's painting and his "minor palette" really rings my chimes. I definately want to give that palette a try. Of course I love large value changes in a painting, perhaps that is a large part of Cherepov's painting's appeal for me.
