tumbld, not stirred.

loverofbeauty:

In 1692 an artist known only as

“A. Boogert” 

mixed and described every color imaginable

in an 800-page book. Not only would he begin

the book with a bit about the use of color

in painting, but would go on to explain

how to create certain hues and change the tone

by adding one, two, or three parts of water.
