I was talking to you on another thread. You are still trying to decide on what size set to buy. I have a set of 120. I was afraid of loving it and not having a big enough set, so I did it right the first time and bought the big one. There is a set of 132 available through Dick Blick but it works out to be cheaper to buy the set of 120 and the set of 12 new colors. Another option, if you have the patience, is to bid on a set on eBay.

But if a set of 120 is too expensive, get whichever set fits into your budget plus buy a couple of individual grays (grays are not included in sets smaller than 72). I would recommend Cool Gray 30% and Warm Gray 50%. I use them for outlining below the image to make a shadow.
