And just for fun here's my palette. My grandpa made this palette out of thick piece of sheet metal. It's very sturdy, fits my hand nicely and is a breeze to clean up. You can scrap the heck out of this palette! The colors I'm using now include: pthalo green, pthalo blue, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, raw sienna, burnt umber, yellow ochre, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow light, cadmium red medium, permanant rose, alizarin crimson, and titanium white.
