This is a completely awesome idea! I also took one of Charlene's Color Theory classes and have a sketchbook full of color wheels and charts. I'm going to try this, I think. I took a field trip down to Daniel Smith's store, which is closing, and got some more colors. Someone had taken all the blues! so I'll have to order those, but I got some great greens and a couple of reds/oranges. I do have a question: Can I share this idea with some other watercolorists I know? They'd be thrilled to give this a try. Thanks!

Thanks Karen, and as you probably have noticed, I have been a slacker for a couple of weeks after running out of paints to swatch. But I am cooking up new fun stuff, some as part of some current classes I am teaching so stay tuned. In the meantime, absolutely yes you may share the idea, that would be wonderful.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
