I've always tried to use a very limited palette....basically a warm and cool of each primary, white, and burnt umber as a filler when mixing darks. The sky is a different color here, so a few weeks ago, with much fanfare, i thought i would reward myself with a new blue. It has touched my palette once. It's so foreign and strange trying to assimilate it into the drawer with the old tried and true tubes.
This storm is one of the greatest days I've ever had in Boise. It just came in waves as i watched it for an hour or so.
