So I jumped in the only way I knew how, with gridding off my design. From there I just began to fill in with pre-determined, and pre-mixed colors I purchased at Home Depot. I used primarily Behr paint (the best in my opinion, worth the extra price). I bought 8 different colors in all, and mixed an addition 5 or 6.
