So I make swatches.
It's pretty simple: I just cut out a lot of 2-inch squares of posterboard, and then painted them with each of my colors. Now I know just what the color looks like when dry. Whenever I'm dithering over which color to pick, I grab some of the swatches and do a comparison until I make my decision. A 2-inch square is also good in case I need to go to Home Depot and buy a pint of paint for larger projects.
