Playfulness within limits

I came across a reference to the early Velazquez palette named after the Spanish painter who used it frequently. For the primary colors of yellow, red and blue he apparently used Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber and black (or Payne’s Grey here).

What kind of playfulness does this call for? How deep do you have to dig within?
