Ok, the last color charts are now done. Boy that was some undertaking.

But it’s another one I’m really glad I did. What a learning journey!

The way a mid Chroma is altered over the range of Value and Chroma is amazing. To really see how orange becomes brown. To see all the subtlety. To see how nature creates sooo many greens.

It does give me a much more complete conceptual framework for developing the color sense that will be required in the realistic artwork I want to pursue. But this is only putting chips in a book! There will be a endless learning curve in translating the chips into paint and then applying the paint to canvas.
