Painter's Color Diary by HG Art Concepts

Overcome color swatch chaos with the Painter's Color Diary!

Patent Pending

You know that frustrating feeling when you think you've painted your swatches the right size only to find that you've run out of space to write your notes? Or, are you just tired of spending all your time prepping swatch grids by hand?

Exclusive to Jerry's, The Painter's Color Diary has a fail-proof layout that allows you to record swatch information for future reference. After discussing ideas with artists, HG Art Concepts developed the Painter's Color Diary to answer the organizational dilemmas that many artists face when painting swatches.

The Painter's Color Diary is exclusive to Jerry's Artarama and is essential for every painter who wants to become a better colorist. Start color swatching all your colors!

There are countless ways to use the Painter's Color Diary. Some examples are:

  • Color swatching all your colors
  • Swatching new color purchases
  • Testing color transparency and opacity
  • Creating color mixing formulas
  • Practicing grey values
  • Creating a value chart for a particular color or colors
  • Practicing tints or shades of colors
  • Testing color palettes for an upcoming painting

The diary is spiral-bound, and the specially designed pages can be removed from the spine to work on. Once completely dry, you can reinsert the pages into the diary. Each page will stay protected by the glassine interleaving sheets that keep your color charts from sticking together. Another bonus is the ability to pull out an individual color chart when you need to refer back to particular colors.

All of the sheets measure 9x12" from the spiral binding, with tons of room for notes and descriptions. The top of each color chart has a line for writing the paint brand, date, your name, or an assignment title if it's for a class. The diary page layout gives five rows of 8 rectangles, separated by two lines for notes and labeling. Each rectangle swatch box measures 1" x 1.5" and has a bold black horizontal line halfway from the top. This deliberate line is there to show transparency or separate half-tones for each color.

Creating a color diary gives you intimate knowledge of how each color will perform, from a glaze to a mass tone. As a painter, you know how valuable swatch and color mixing information is. Think how much easier it will be to plan your paintings with all that important information in an organized format!

Painter's Color Diary Review

"Over the decades I have continued to make tests of a diverse and ever growing collection of oil paints, taking note of how they respond to the addition of white paint to analyze tinting strength or adding a glaze medium to note how the pigments react transparently. Sometimes I will test one color, such as Raw Sienna, from different paint manufacturers to determine which version will be best for my needs. Before using The Painter's Color Diary, I did these tests on my painting or palette and wiped them away. With this wonderful tool, I now keep a record and note each color and company.
For me, The Painter's Color Diary is the perfect color tool for artists working in oils. Printed on high quality canvas paper and protected by vellum sleeves, this pad allows for the testing and recording of colors with no bleed through.
I highly recommend the Painter's Color Diary, not only for students, but for professional artists. My color struggle now will be to decide whether to keep the pages in the book, or post them on the studio wall! "
