    Palette - Paint Brand Color Sample Sets

    I created several color palettes, based on existing paint brands.

    You're welcome to use them.

    Where the color can be different depending on the thickness of the layer of paint, I used the average of the color. In case of paint brands which do not name their colors, I numbered them, so they can be sorted in their original order on the color palette (Sort by Name).


    How to use:

    Copy *.col to the "your user directory"\Ambient Design\ArtRage 3\Resources\Colors folder (on Vista: C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Ambient Design\ArtRage 3\Resources\Colors).
    On the Color Sample palette, select "Import New Global Color Sample Set" or "Import New Local Color Sample Set" from the scroll down menu, then select the set you want to use in the window that opens.


    The following color sets are ready:

    Amsterdam oil colour




    Rembandt oil colour



    Rembrandt soft pastel



    Rembrandt water colour



    Talens ecoline colour



    van Gogh oil colour



    Gouache extra fine quality



    Two additional color palettes:

    van Gogh water colour



    St. Petersburg White Night water colour

    Wonderful effort and contribution. Thank you.
    Just curious, how did you sample these to get them to be "true color" to their sources? How does one go about doing something like that?
    Appreciation fosters well-being. Be well.

    I used scanned paint tests and catalogues for color samples. Because of the scanning the colors are converted to RGB and they are also usable in RGB color space in Artrage. The colors get somewhat distorted during virtual painting, because of the limited color range of the RGB color space and because the virtual paint doesn't have the chemical and physical properties of real pigments.

    Hi,

    First, thanks for your extensive work!

    I was wondering to what end you were going to use them? The reason I asked is that after several phone calls and e-mail exchanges with the Technical Labs at Golden Paints, I became aware of the many variables that all impact on the color samples we see in AR, Painter or PhotoShop and beyond, what actually prints on home printers.

    After I finish a painting and print it, I preserve the color and surface with UV protection. I then add real acrylics to the digital painting to create unique expressions of the project or to add depth and texture.

    So, of course, if could get accurate digital representations of the actual Golden Paint, I could simply use the same colors in the digital and in the applied acrylic and have a "perfect" match.

    Not so.....

    Some of the variables at play are:

    1) Calibration of the monitor(s) used to create the art. Not every RGB value looks the same on all monitors. Also, as the monitor heats up, colors change as well.
    2) Real acrylic paint colors used to paint digitally may not print because of the gamut limitations of the printer used.
    3) The color profile for the paper used will also interact with the gamut limitations of the printer as well as how that color appears on the monitor.

    Well, I can now pretty much get of out of my Epson 2880 what appears on the monitor most of the time. But adding the Golden counter part in acrylic is, at best, in the neighborhood, but no banana.

    My idea was to not have to tone any real acrylics to get a good blend with my printer art. From my experience with Golden products is that many of their acrylics are out of gamut in their pure state when printed digitally.

    Unfortunately, AR3 has no color management capability, so, for me, I have to export my work from AR to PhotoShop or Painter and deal with gamut/paper/printer issues there.

    Well, thanks for wading through this epistle. I don't want to minimize your efforts in any way. Nor do I want to suggest that I am an expert on color and real acrylics. Take what I have shared in the context of my experience.


    Cordially,

    Jim Gahl
