- 800 colors is a lot, but you realize that variations are truly infinite. What happens if mixed two colors unevenly and tinted or shaded that? What happens if I add in the complement to grey the color down? It goes on and on!
- Got a good feel for which colors are stronger or weaker than other colors. Thalo green, thalo blue - way strong. Raw sienna, alizarin crimson - not so much!
- This kind of exercise really sped up my color mixing to the values I wanted.
- ...and....I should've done this a long time ago :-)

800 Colors from a palette of 12
Whew! So this was an interesting and time consuming exercise. I took my palette of 12 colors (plus white & black) and mixed every color with every other color and then tinted each combination giving me 10 values for each color. Some take aways from this exercise....
