Personal Paint Library

I’ve been taking an online class with Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen, Color Beyond the Basics. Our first assignment was to create a personal color library mixing all our existing paint colors in a prescribed method using black, white, buff, irridescents and primary colors. It has been tedious work, but so rewarding. From 32 acrylic colors, I have created a big color library. Here are some of my swatches.



The class has an open start time, and you can do the assignments at your own pace. That’s good, because I am behind. Lesson 2 has already been posted.
