Whenever I start a new Moleskine sketchbook I like to make a small color wheel and color chart to see just how the watercolor reacts and lays down on the paper. It is also a good review about basic color mixing that we tend to take for granted. A color palette is the actual range of pigments used by an artist, learning how they behave when they are mixed together is essential. Studying color is a fundamental aspect of painting and to that end artist create color charts and color wheels.
