On my most recent project, I've decided to do something new with color. I discovered a way of working using only a warm and a cool shade of each primary color (6 colors total- cerulean blue and french ultramarine, etc...), supplemented by a couple of extra colors that aren't mixable.
Theoretically, mixing only the same temperature primaries together will produce clean bright secondary and tertiary colors. So far I have been able to mix just about every color that I have wanted and a black that has far more depth than anything I had previously used. I found the information on the Daniel Smith website: http://danielsmith.com/
