Making a Paint Chart....

Hello again,

I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I have a basket full of tubes of

acrylic paint, and I really had no idea what most of the colours are really

like....... all jumbled up, and the colours on the labels are not true representations.

So this afternoon I made a colour chart, just splotches on a strip of watercolour

paper, with the names next to them.

And it's SO useful, as I found out when I made two more textured backgrounds.

You can even visualise how the colours will go together and react in a colour

scheme. I will get so much use out of this.

I am really pleased with these :)  Now I have to work out where to go from here.

Bye for now, P.

    These backgrounds look interesting :)
