At last I have enough time for new book on my desk. I started to learn from Jeanne Dobie's "Making color sing" and enjoyed every page of it.
I will post here my steps.
Her basic transparent palette is
Aureolin (cool yellow), rose madder (cool red), cobalt blue (cool blue), Viridian (cool green).
Alizarin crimson (deep cool red), Winsor blue (deep cool blue), Winsor green (deep cool green).
Cad. yellow (warm yellow), cad. red (warm red), ultramarine (warm blue),
Light red, Indian red.
She uses also raw sienna (mixing it with aureolin (more) and rose madder) and burnt sienna (mixing the same colors but opposite proportion).
The sketch above is nothing about composition, but a lot about mixes of greys from the book (she names them "mouse power". All colors in my sketch were the mixtures of three primaries, varying sequence, amount and consistency of colors. Who could guess grey able to look so variously??
Here is the study of the greys with the indication of the ingredients. Upper row shows how the compliment to the dominant color in grey mixture starts singing when in right company.
I have never made color charts, so new experience is very interesting.
The book is completed with amazing illustrations of Jeanne's paintings, so inspiring.
