Don't get anyone started on oranges or purples, heh. Real watercolor artists use three primaries, and they can argue about the correct components for hours.
I am not a real watercolor artist. I have 30 colors in my main palette, including a sparkly one. I love convenience colors, Primateks, and weirdo paints like Potter's Pink. I also think that, in general, White Nights and Holbein paints are better than Schmincke and M. Graham and have the swatch cards to prove it. These opinions mark me as a complete watercolor moron, and I decided long ago that the results are the only things that are really important.
The new grays are very lovely--I saw Steve Mitchell's video where he painted with them, and would liike to get a few. The trouble is, it's so easy to mix grays...and I just have no room for another color...but someday I might get a larger palette and then I will add one or two.
