The Magic Palette Color Mixing Guides were created by Dee Solin, an accomplished artist and colorist, who works with oil on canvas and uses color extensively in her work. She created the guides for her personal use to help her select and mix a broad range of colors without wasteful, time consuming trial and error. She wanted a working tool that was simple to use, convenient and color accurate. It had to take the guesswork out of mixing colors.
It was also important to her that a reasonable number of basic tube colors be used to create a broad palette of mixed colors. As she painted with the guide and expanded and refined the color choices, she discovered that her color palette had expanded dramatically, her paintings improved and she was mixing crisp, clear colors with amazing confidence. The mixing guide she created became an indispensable part of her everyday painting process.
