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

The color diary is spiral-bound with removable pages so that you can work on multiple sheets simultaneously. Once dry, you can reinsert the pages between layers of the included glassine, so they don’t stick together.

Each swatch box contains a bold black line to show transparency or separate half-tones.

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!"
