|Working with Color Charts ©CindyRippe2015|
When I prepared to record the video this week I searched everywhere for those charts. You may remember that I've downsized my studio. Well there are BOXES and BOXES of supplies and reference material that I haven't put away yet. I thought they were pretty well sorted but... apparently not enough.
As I was looking through my digital files, for an image to use for facebook post, this picture popped up. I can't remember why I took the picture but I'm glad that I did. I was with my friend Kelly Hoernig as she taught a colored pencil class. She let me come along for the ride and I worked in the back of the class on my own projects.
So.. back to the Importance of Color Charts....most paints, colored pencils and markers look very different in their packaging. If you take the time to make samples you'll see what they look like on the surface you normally use. It's so much easier to choose colors this way.
