Always make sure they are fresh, high-quality and without impurities. It'll be even better if they are carefully manufactured by a reputable artisan. Then, when tried, they will satisfy you with rich, smooth texture and color. A wonderful experience like this is hard to forget, making us want to come back to it again and again.
As you can guess, I am talking about a really good gelato, wonderfully tasty Italian ice cream, just like what you can get at a popular gelateria in the sunny Sorrento. But, seriously, the same thing can be said about paints we choose to work with.
How our paints/colors perform can make or break a painting. That's why it is important to choose the best kind that suits our taste, style, subject, or even character. If we don't feel good about the paints in our palette, we won't make a truly good painting because our lack of confidence will show.
