Oil Color Samples

From time to time I do a color sampling of the oil colors that are new to my collection to determine which will be kept or which will be deleted.  I can also determine if it can be mixed easily with current colors.

Here is a Color Sample Board of all of the colors in my box from 2005. Each color is continually diluted with more and more white to observe the subtleties of that color. It is good to know what happens.

Also small color intermix studies are done to see how different colors intermix.  These are more casual.

NOTE:  Photographs cannot truly represent the range of colors that the eye can see.
