Samples of the colors I discovered yesterday - EIU

Yesterday I found a good combination of colors to make a nice black, light grey and many other colors. They were all from Egyptian Violet, Indian Yellow and Ultramarine Blue. I'm going to call this grey EIU after the first letter of each color name. This is kind of an off beat color palette but one that would be useful for earth colored paintings. You get nice brown reds, olive type greens, a good warm yellow and a deep black. Here are some samples of the colors.
