Colour charts are a helpful tool to have in your art practice but making them yourself is often tedious and time consuming. Free charts available online often have digital reproductions of the colours and aren't always accurate, especially when you print them out yourself. After years of making and perfecting my own custom charts, I've decided to make them available to other artists like yourself as well!
These charts come pre-scaled to print on US Letter (8.5"x11") sized paper. I've included instructions on how to print the chart on your own heavyweight artist paper, as well as best practice tips that I use to fill in the charts. The charts also include the manufacturer's lightfast ratings as well as blank spaces for you to write in additional ratings such as those from the Colored Pencil Society of America's independent ATSM D5383 lightfast testing.
The hardest part is done and now all you have to do is colour in all of the swatches!
