Palettes of Powerful Painters

 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.
