Very cool. I'm sure somewhere, a psychiatrist would attempt to analyze these for insight into the artist's psyche.

I like Van Gogh's the best.

What I want to see now are the pastel boxes Degas and others used; how cool would that be?

Sonya: as you wish! See today's post.I think the difference between the two palettes tells volumes.

Hi, Maggie!

That's interesting. I'd like to see the palettes of more artists.

Hi, Jo! Unlike pastel boxes, I think there are numerous palette pics on the net. Also, paintings done by historic artists who represented themselves with their palettes - a genre, really.
