Are Any Colors Ordinary?

Rolling Twilight
Yes, winter is beautiful to me. The shadows are long all through the day. I've done a study of a lovely sunset that is making it's way to a full sized painting. This is one scene I want to do justice.

Here's the palette I used. Ordinary colors. But really, are any colors ordinary?

White, cad yellow lemon, raw sienna, cadmium orange, permanent rose, magenta (Winsor Newton), ultramarine, burnt sienna, cobalt, thalo turquoise, viridian.

It's just magic to me that smears of paint can turn into something with harmony and beauty. As I usually say - it's all abstract!
