      I’m trying to find a high res copy of this color bias chart. I’ve tried running it through Google images to no avail.
      Maybe someone knows of a similar one. I’m looking for something that would list opacity as well as whether the color is warm or cool. Thank you so much!

        it’s not good news, i’m afraid. the best way to get what you need is likely roll up your sleeves and write/edit a chart.

        over at gamblin they have all you’re looking for but on two separate pages. should you buy another brand, there might be differences; same name has different ingredients and varying transparencies.

        color temperature is commonly deemed as an opinion and it depends on how the paint is used in a finished painting.

        here’s one very useful site with pigment information

        and you could benefit from reading online, the science of color is a helpful search term.

        happy painting :bye:

          That chart looks like Gamblin colors but I can’t find it anywhere either. There is this list but it doesn’t list opacity:

          But echoing the other comment: it’s best to take warm/cool categorizations with a grain of salt…a whole other topic that is often discussed here.

            Not sure if you are focused on Oil or Acrylic.

            In reference to acrylics I have found this useful. It should give a rough feel for oil as well.  (?)

              the news might be less than good, as you’ve already noticed. the qualities you’re after are not set in stone but depend on the brand. this is the first time i’ve ever seen listings like in your attachment. it’s quite possible, and likely, that you need to roll up your sleeves and simply make one to your liking. the pigment and the transparency are vital information and can be found on the tube /packaging with artists quality brands, but the temperature is commonly viewed as both a personal opinion and a quality depending on the use of the paint in a painting.

               

              over at gamblin they have the information you want, but it’s on two separate pages

              one of many sites with information

              and a favourite, a.necessity! for many painters
