Organising your palette

Why would one dedicate a whole tuition chapter to just organising a box full of pastel sticks? The answer is a bit more complex than that. The pastel box should be organised after a good grasp of that these individual colour can do for you. I hope hereby to help you eliminate a lot of guesswork every time you choose a pastel stick. By liberating a lot of colour decision burden you can concentrate more on the drawing aspect and other preoccupations. The result should be the furthering of your pastel progress and certainly making painting more fun and enjoyable. 

Let's assume that you already own a good chunk of pastels. You have a box of say 100 different shades set up in a rainbow manner.
