An indispensable guide if you are having trouble finding a certain color and need the mixing proportions- it also takes the color from a photo (on your computer) and gives you the exact colors to mix to achieve the color.

Now how cool is that?

I highly recommend not using graphs, tracing paper, measuring implements, projectors or computer programs to do your art for you. Build your skills and train your eye to see as an artist because it gives life, movement and energy to a piece. Measuring, detail and tightness will often lose a quality in your art that only the artistic eye can achieve. Sacrifice perfection and give yourself permission to explore.-PA
