Wooden palette is a holly grail for oil painting

I only use wooden palette(prepped with lindseed oil and a little copal) because with time it become the most ideal truly nuetral shade against which all colors look true. Whereas if you use a white palette, your colors will be mixed lighter because everything aumaticly looks darker against a white background
