Chart Your Palette!

Artists who are serious about mastering color know the value of "doing the charts".

Nothing increases the mastery of your palette more effectively than the systematic creation of color charts with hue and value gradations for the colors in your palette.

Color Mixing Templates with Panels or Linen

Now ColorFrontier™ eliminates the need to mask and prepare boards or canvas with sticky tape by hand. A peel up mask is designed to be placed upon a blank panel or sheet of primed linen canvas. The square openings are laid out in a grid ready for your paint and allow for the value and mixture studies of an average, balanced palette of 11 colors or feweras in the case of a limited palette. (Patent No. 6,857,875).

”For anyone deterred from making the very important color charts because of the work involved in preparing the boards and squares, I recommend Randal McClure’s product. I wish his boards were available when I was doing my charts.” -Richard Schmid

Richard Schmid's book Alla Prima II - Expanded Edition has an excellent discussion about the purpose and method for doing the charts. (See Chapter 8)

Generally regarded as the art world's foremost book for painters seeking serious instruction in representational painting, Alla Prima-II is available at www.richardschmid.com along with other great items, including Katie Swatland's "Companion" to Alla Prima-II, DVDs and much more.
