So amazing that these palettes are still around to be blogged about. I’ve placed each one next to one of the artist’s works as a kind of not-quite before and after. I think Seurat’s is my favorite – his transition from dark to light on the palette is not only really beautiful but probably pretty functional as well.
All the palette photos were found on this post on Retronaut.co.
