    Thanks for post­ing these swatches David:) Upon the rec­om­men­da­tion of Valentino I am devour­ing Blake’s Cre­ative Color For The Oil Painter. This book is so amaz­ing, it angers me to no end that this infor­ma­tion wasn’t even close to being pre­sented when I was tak­ing art courses at Uni­ver­sity. I am hav­ing to unlearn every­thing I had been taught– I am grate­ful though that I finally found the real deal.

    I haven’t seen that one. I’ll see if I can track down a copy.
