         Here is a chart I made with all my blues and yellows.  This is a painting of the New Castle Library using this chart.  I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Dear Kathy,
Seeing a colour chart from such an accomplished artist like you really bring home the message that colour wheels and colour charts are important... at all levels.

Thank you.  You really inspire me.  And for whatever it is worth...  your  chart of 56 different greens is great.  Many many thanks for sharing this  :thankyou:

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Excellent painting of the Newcastle Library Kathy and a good exercise in mixing greens. Did you see Dennis' lesson on mixing greens, if not, it is worthwhile taking a look for it was really very comprehensive.
