Color Swatches



I have been collecting index cards of color notations and will be uploading them here for easy reference. Please be aware that these are collected notes and that the colors are only approximate representations. The color seen on a computer monitor can vary based on the computers color calibration. Furthermore a computer monitor is light being emitted from the monitor, thus making the colors appear stronger and lighter.

Over the years many artist have shared their experiences with various brands and colors and I like to thank them all. I welcome any new suggestions or observations you might want to include here.

The Munsell Color Charts can be found here:

N Neutrals
Reds
Yellows
Greens
Blues
Purples
