Recommendations: The colors used range between rose madder and white wash for highlighting, and a sky or cobalt blue with a white wash for highlighting, both using a darker shade of each for shading. The permanant green middle used has thin yellow lines for highlight, turning into white lines when encountering any other color than green. Basically, the colors used are of a light to medium range.
