Color charts for Paint Manufacturers

Unfortunately, when it comes to colors, it’s a “buyer beware” market.  There are no standards for what pigments constitute any given color name.  However, Paint Manufacturers have color charts that tell you all about each of their colors.  Information about their transparency, their pigments, and their lightfastness can all be looked up with these charts. I provide these links to help you learn about the colors I encourage you to use.  These links can help you look up the color characteristics of two of my favorite watercolor brands.

I hope it helps you!
