Scott discusses the primary colors he uses and the rational behind their choice.
Determine a primary palette that works for you and provides you with an extensive range. A warm and cool of each primary color (red, yellow, blue) plus white is a great starting point. Suggestions include:
A note on blue: Blue is a difficult color to describe as warm or cool as it is inherently cool. Ultramarine blue is a cooler blue to me because of the red used in ultramarine is a cooler red. Therefore, I use ultramarine primarily as a cooler color. I tend to use cobalt both ways because it is a "cleaner" blue. When I am going toward green, cobalt created a cleaner looking green to me but it also cools very well and I do not get so dark.
Determine your primary palette and experiment with the range that it offers.
