The New Munsell Student Color Set

It's here! I am so excited just like an "artsy nerd" I have ordered this rather technical book that has these tiny color chips that you have to organize by value and glue into it's proper place. Well there is more to it than that...

The idea behind the exercises are to learn to differentiate between the different hues of a color and it's chroma within a given hue. As I do these exercises I am also coloring swatches and noting what was mixed to get that particular hue. I think in the long run it will help in quickly making the right color choices, rather than wasting precious time and paint. I will post my progress as I complete each color sequence.

The book is available from Amazon

If you like to learn along as I go through the exercises follow these links:
