I am making color swatches for my oil paint collection. There are two components: the main grid, and the color cards.

Here is a digital version of my color chart. This is not the most updated version; I plan to make a more fine-tuned graphic . Some of the colors have been tweaked as well (not shown in this version of the image)

For the square cards, one line is straight from the tube, while the other is mixed with white. Once these dry, I will cut them up into individual mini-cards. The idea behind these is that I can pick out colors and see how they look together. 

At some point I would like to add a third component in which certain colors get their own page to demonstrate particular mixtures with other pigments, how it would look under certain circumstances, etc. It would be nice to have easy reference material.

Also if I could figure out why half of my tubes are bleeding oil that would be gr9.
