Video - Color Matching / Swatching Charts - Organizing (& Expanding) My Swatches
I love to swatch, there I've said it! I find it relaxing. It also allows me to get to know a new set of coloring tools and how they react on various papers. Finally, I get to see all those lovely colors! Some sets I plan to use in alot of scenarios so I may swatch them out on six or more papers. Other sets have a very specific use so I will swatch on very few types of papers.
Since moving to my space (Here's a video of all the glorious room I now have ->new space video link) and as part of settling in, I decided to change how I store swatches. I used to keep them with the pencils/markers, but found that to be a bit cumbersome and limiting. I've now cleaned out a binder and empied a bunch protective sheets to house them all in one place. Now the only limit is 8 1/2 x 11 inches, Yay!
I've also extended the use of my Copic color matching chart sheet that Imagination International created/copyrighted back in 2013 for personal use only. Here is a downloadable copy of it for you and below is a link to my original article from way back in 2016. ->HERE IS THE DOWNLOADABLE BLANK COLOR MATCHING PDF<-.
And, I mentioned a particular colored pencil artist Bonny Snowdon. I have many favorite youtube artists to watch and learn from, but decided to narrow it down to one artist of whom I plan to participate in their live draws (I've already completed two of them) and will join their Patreon as time allows. This commitment includes purchasing the pencils Bonny has in her core colored pencil list. I go into that in some detail in the video. Be sure to check her out as she is a gifted colorist!
