When painting there are many situations where it can be a great help to get an idea about which colours to use and in what amount. Often the light conditions aren’t good enough or you have to work fast and with larger amounts of paint.


The main goal is the artwork and not whether you are able to mix colours. Everything that interferes unnecessary with your workflow when painting are moving you further away from making art.


You can load colour schemes or a color chart and use them as palette for a painting.


PaintMaker is useful both for abstract painting and naturalistic painting whether you work with great precision or with a looser approach.


Both acrylic paint and oil paint can be used in the system.


The color mixer is a unique tool to experiment with painting techniques and practice color theory.
