I am finding it interesting how much variation in color can be done with just 3 colors and white.
The three today are Holbein Compose Rose, Daniel Smith French Ultramarine, and Sennelier Bright Yellow green.
The Bright yellow green is one of my favorites and I like the Sennelier brand the best. There are colors that I will get only from one brand, just because that company seems to me to make the best version. Cad. Orange I will only buy the Utrecht brand, Utrecht produces many pure pigment colors. Old Holland has a Violet Grey I just love. and Sennelier's yellow green is just right. Some companies give odd names to colors, for example Holbein Compose Rose is actually a Naphthol red, and the yellow green is a mix of pigments. If you want a quick place to see what the true pigment is in a color Dick Blick lists a tab "pigment info" for most of the colors and brands they sell, it is really helpful and I use it a lot, just for reference.
The more you learn about color the easier it is to work with.
