Here is an example of how to set up a palette using the method that Ursula O'Farrell demonstrates in her class. The two colors on the left are complimentary colors; the middle three are whites in various amounts; and the ones on the right are blacks. The two complimentary colors are blended with the blobs of black and white (separately) to form various tones of the color. The results are then blended together again to get beautiful neutral shades (Ursula calls the blended shades "children" of the parental original colors).
