Color reference cards
Now, they're organized into categories, such as Color Schemes (and subsections), Color Design, Paint Tests, etc. A portrait painter would probably have sections on flesh tones and eye colors. A landscape painter might want to keep track of mixtures for greens or fog or skies. Quilters and collage artists might find this system useful, too. My cards are nearly all watercolor paper, so I can see how the paint will look on the surface I paint on. They are 4" x 6", but could be a little bigger in the photo box if you prefer. The system is easy to set up and inexpensive. I enjoy making new cards for paintings, but also, it's fun to browse through them to rediscover color combinations I've had success with in the past.
