Crimson and Tuscan are what I have been using. I think I may order a couple of open stock reds to see if I can find a few more hues and values of them. I LOVE Tuscan red thoguh. I seem to go through those more than any other color..
HMM..do you all have certain colors you use up quicker? I know I agree with Dini about getting "sets" of pencils then filling in where you need to. I seem to have replaced certain colors more than others..like for black, I use layers of indigo, dark green, tuscan red and finally a light layer of black ( OMSing each layer). It makes a deep black but isn't flat. I have a fairy I am working on and use that for the back ground...( when done I will post to my blog)..Anyway just wondering what everyone elses "go-to" colors were.
