Here's my improvement to my 80 count set of Senneliers:

Getting the inside cover done took about 6-8 hours -- got the color image from Sennelier; it was small and all together without room for any text.I had to match up numbers with actual color names -- fried my brain it did.
That inside cover diagram you said you got from Sennelier would be greatly useful to me. My Plein Air set didn't come with any such chart or even a list on the box, so if one of my pastels bites the dust (pun intended), I have no real way of knowing what number to replace it with. Oddly, when I got a set of full size Sennelier Darks it came with a full Sennelier chart. Where did you find that chart? I can't seem to locate one for my Plein Air set. Thanks.

Re: Photos of pastel collections

I always recoil a little when I see Terry Ludwigs mixed in with the other pastels. I don't know why, it's just a personal thing. I have always pretty much thrown all different pastels together into my collection, being mostly concerned about finding the right color instead of the particular brand, but the TL's are different. They need to be separated from the rest, just because they are so different, I guess. I will work away on a painting and I know that for the last few stages I will open the TL drawer and find what I need. I have most of the colors memorized by now, I think, so I know right when and where I'm going to find it when I need it. Weird how differently we all work and how we organize and store our supplies! Show me some more photos....
