Kitty and color charts

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I thought you might like to see my cat Chubbs. She's sitting on top of my flat files near my computer router and my color charts. I made these charts because I like to actually see the colors on watercolor paper after they have dried. I compare the brands and find the best one for me. I encourage all artist to do this and to also learn the properties of their paints. So many times I have found paints may be very much alike in color and value but may have other properties such as staining or granulation which can be used at different times to get certain effects.
