    Zorn is incredible at maximizing his limited color palette. if i remember correctly, he used something like: Yellow Ochre, vermilion, ivory black and cremmtz white or zinc white.

    Just for kicks, here are his watercolors that he executed during his 20's

    Terrific thread Josh.

    I like how Manley pushes you to paint.
