  1. I have listened to three of your podcasts and am enjoying them. Thank you. I would like to see examples of the color charts to which Mark Boedges referred. Where can this concept be seen? I use watercolor, so I’d like to see examples of watercolor color charts too.

  2. Now this one… is the best one! Thank you so much for this and a big thank you to Mark Boedges! Great inspiration for me.
