flying colors

 Love this wall of paint swatches that look like they are about ready to fly.
Once my studio is ready to move into, I really want to make a palette of colors that I can play around with on watercolor paper and mount them on a wall.
When starting on a work, I could easily formulate a color palette by selecting flying colors.

Such a great idea plus beautiful to look at each day. I hope you are close to being done....I'm sure it's worth the wait though. Have a wonderful Monday!

Given the number of little painting projects we're tackling at home, I have a number of walls covered in paint swatches and even a front door! Would love to have a rainbow of colors in my work space...

I used to love going to the hardware store with my parents, because they would just leave me to drool in front of the color swatches while they shopped. :) I still love color swatches. They're like candy for the eyes.

PVE,

Love, Love, Love color and the color swatches are mini adventures each on their own. Oh the possibilities are really endless.

Nice work, and most likely very helpful to other artists!

Is it possible to purchase a copy of the water color swatches? I'd love to have something similar in my wedding studio.

what is the source for the watercolor color chart? Just curious because I created one just like it when I was in college, as do probably many college students, BUT they look to be the exact same colors in the palette, so I wondered if it was by some crazy coincidence if it was a chart by someone who had my same instructor.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.
