A pinch of colour

This is part of a threesome I'm preparing. Colour is slowly seeping  into my palette with these fragments.
 I do tend to think in neutral first, because of the use of grisaille. The other basic local "filling" colours are often soft or at least the result of many mixed tints.  I like to use full body colour a bit like spice,just  to sharpen up an area or to keep a design vibrant.
