We revisit the book, A Grammar of Color, published by Strathmore Paper in 1921. The second half of the book is dedicated to the color sheets, where Strathmore cover papers are printed with specific colors based on the Munsell Color System and analyzed. In part 15 of this series of excerpts, we look at the colors Brown, Antique Finish, and Grouse Drab.

Janis took her long standing respect for the land and combined it with her love of art and painting by turning soil into a paint element and using it as the medium for her art. Learn about her process and which colors are created by which soil minerals in the Munsell Color Blog. http://munsell.com/color-blog/soil-colors-lewis-clark-national-historic-trail/
