I realized (finally) that dividing warm and cool / light and dark has been the way I approach a painting. So I finally decided to reorganize my palette. The columns of the far right and left are the grays, which I used to group together. As I use it I may reorganize the sticks, add or subtract. I ramped up the lights and darks when I noticed that my palette was heavy in the middle and too light on the ends.
What spurred this on? I noticed so many sticks in my box were used little and it didn't really suit the way I think- warm /cool.
My big question is pinks and magentas. Sometimes they seems just fine in cools sometimes in warms. As I say the sorting will continue.... maybe I just have too many pinks.
Have you had the urge to reorganize your palette or box? Why?
This is the trial run painting from the reorganization.
