Making paint charts

I never liked doing mixing charts before, but this class I'm in has turned it into a meditation on color combos. I'm so surprised that this has been relaxing and fun to do. This first one is a small set of Sennelier pan colors I've been using for a long time. I didn't realize that blues plus brown or orange gave such nice grays.

These little rascals (Radiant) are so vivid and juicy.

Now that I've painted a bazillion little squares, I have to paint something loose, wild and messy to restore balance to the universe.
