i began cataloging the colors, and put the color list on the web. over time, the paint catalog turned into a web site.

Seriously, is there a problem with shift keys that I'm unaware of? Second post in a row with that oh so emo "look at me i am sad face oh oh oh" formatting.

That said, some neat stuff here, even if the design makes it hard to track - centering everything? Really.

I've been enjoying handprint.com lately as I've been playing with watercolor - it's a very informative site, if you can get past the verbosity. The perspective section was fascinating, if only for the history.

LOVE this site, your fifth/last link! Thank you ijoshua! Great, practical info, unpretentious, intelligent and straightforward in a likeable way.

Interesting read but really, most artists could give a crap about pigment load or agglomerates. Good to see there are geeks in the art community who take the time to care about this stuff.

however, i can't scroll the left frame on the third link so can't see all the links. ditch the frames.
