Does the headline say it all? No tube of grey, black or even an earth tone.

    So if you didn’t use gray or black, or earth, what colors did you use? blue yellow green red & white?

    Thanks – well I switch paints around a lot still but most likely a warm and cool yellow ( a cadmium lemon and cadmium medium), red (cad red light and alizarin crimson) and blue (ultramarine blue, cerulean blue and maybe cobalt teal – a very bright turquoise)- plus sap green and dioxizine purple. Mixing browns and blacks is definitely the more expensive route but the results are more complex colors.
