|Green Girl made us this color chart to help us collaborate on a project.|
If you use a wide variety of colors in your work or if you are ever in need of inspiration, try making yourself a color chart. You could make a chart of just your favs. (Sometimes you can picture the "just right" green, but the name escapes you!) Or make a chart of new colors you are unsure of + want to get to know better. (You might be surprised to discover a new favorite!) Try making a chart that experiments with different color combinations. (It's always a great source of inspiration.) Or make one for muted colors + one for bolds. In our opinion, there is no right or wrong way to make a color chart. You just want it to be useful for you, so organize your colors however you want!
Having some of your paint colors charted and labeled by color name + maybe even by brand too (if you use a variety) may sound anal retentive and we certainly do not refer to it every day, but it's kind of a fun exercise + handy to pull out later for reference once in awhile. And if your very fondest, favoritest color gets discontinued + you are desperately searching for just the right replacement, you could make a color chart of just all greens....(ahem).....or reds, or whatever.
"Laying it all out there" gives you a new perspective sometimes. And you might find that the chart itself ends up being its own kind of masterpiece!
