Spotlight - A Colour Chart Before Pantone

This month, Spotlight takes a look at the work of a dedicated Dutch artist who, in 1692, took it upon himself to write (and paint) in detail about mixing watercolors.

From the article, "Not only would he begin the book with a section about the use of color in painting, but would go on to explain how to create certain hues and change the tone by adding one, two, or three parts of water. The premise sounds simple enough, but the final product is almost unfathomable in its detail and scope."
