I voted yellow (here 6 years later), because I tend to mix yellow or orange into every other color, but looking more closely at the art i haven't posted, i've done most of my underpainting in pink, because it layers well for skin tones

Absolutely yellow! I tend to use yellow for base, and I also use Permanent Pink, Sky Blue, Purple Lake, Red hue for my portraits.

Blues, ultramarine. I usually use it for sketching and for the first layer of painting. Burnt umber takes the second place.

Uh.. no idea. I don't have a preference really, I just use what feels right with the picture. I try to vary the colours. Using the same colours all the time can be dull. ^^;

I'm not actually certain what it'd be for me - I voted for Blue because off the top of my head that'd be my go-to colour for a background wash.

Ah, good suggestion. It'd be Ultramarine, but I use that a lot to mix lots of colours - greys, purples, blues and long-cut paynes grey.

Still, that's consistent with my 'blue' vote!

I really love reds, so I used them a lot. Lately, i have also been branching out into bright green and golden green colors too :P

I use a lot of blues and skin tones (flesh color, orange, red). Recently I've been finding that mixing red or purple with my colors produces some really nice hues, so they're becoming some of the most used colors in my palette.

So far, since I've been obsessed with skin tones and drawing chibi characters, it's definitely been pale shades of warm yellows, browns and reds, all basically rather earthy colors. :3 I voted "warm yellow" since that's usually my base skin color.

As far as pigment goes, I use tons of reds...mostly alizarin crimson. However, I paint primarily with coffee and tea, so naturally there's lots of browns. I really love warm palettes.
I try not to discriminate, though. ;P

Sorry if I missed one, polls allow only 10 spots, if you want to be more specific you can comment, when the poll is changed, I'll tally the results and post them in a journal.
