I use a limited palette, the typical warm/cool palette, which includes cadmium yellow light, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, alizarine crimson, ultramarine blue, cerulean blue and titanium white. Each of those colors has another color in it. Once you can identify the additional color, you will have better results when using the color. Following is a list of each of the paint colors with the additional color each has in it, also if it is cool or warm: Cadmium yellow light–a cool yellow, tends to appear as if it has blue in it (at least in relationship to cad yellow med).
Becky Joy posted a pdf for us on how to use and understand working with a limited palette.  She explains it really well.  I wish I knew this back in college.  Great info! Get it HERE
Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything.

Finding Vivian Maier

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired. Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.
