I collect many kinds of art materials: color pencils, watercolor pencils, oil pastels, pan watercolors, acrylics, oils, etc. They all follow the same system of organization based in the color wheel.
This system provides me with some consistency when I change mediums. Yes, I’m trying to make my life a little less complicated and also more productive.
I try to always have warm and cool basic colors and start with the yellows, continue with oranges, reds, purples, blues, greens, earth, gray and black. White can go at the beginning or at the end, this changes according to the medium and if I’m arranging my colors in a palette or in a box.
This is a video showing how I do my arranging of colors using color pencils and other materials.
