Well, I have lots of colours on my palette, but on my last painting I used Winsor Blue, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Transparent Yellow, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, and some very pale Turquoise for the water.

I added the Turquoise to my palette recently - trying to be a "bit more adventurous"

W&N Cobalt Turquoise, PB36. I added a couple of bright colours to my palette as an experiment.

Post Re: Does anyone use there only 6 colour palette ?

I understand color mixing and how a limited palette works,but in my humble opinion,a limited palette is convenient and adequate in countries of Europe as England where muted colors had been used by centuries with a good reason,the weather calls for them.I live in a tropical zone,lots of colorful places,my palette will take as many colors as it can handle,the brighter the better,if a dull color is called for always can be achieved by proper mixing.

Brown pink was a color made from berries or other plant materials. And at that time "pink" meant a yellow color. Brown pink refered to a darker, browner shade of yellow made from these plant materials.

Stil-de-grain also refered to a yellow color made from berries, and sometimes brown pink is considered to mean a dark shade of stil-de-grain.

The Natural Pigments website has an interesting article on historical pigments refered to as "pink." http://naturalpigments.com/blog/2008...is-yellow.html

It's funny, the colors in my limited palette have already changed since I first responded to this post. I now use primarily cerulean blue, alizarin crimson, nickel azo yellow and viridian green! I wonder what it will be next month.

Re: Does anyone use only a 6 colour palette ?

IMHO The number of colors in your box doesnt matter
and they allways change with the season

The reason for a limitted palette is : easier to create a color harmony

A 36 color box looks so great but you need years of practice to master ist

Where I studied art, black was shunned for killing colour. We were forbidden to use it. True watercolour did not use black!!!

In my humble opinion, you are mistaken. Europe and England, as you put it, are very colourful. Have a look at some of JMW Turners paintings. Also a limited palette doesn't imply a muted palette.
