Covino Controlled Palette © In following a Classical Academic approach to painting with the use of this Controlled Palette, you are perpetuating a method formulated and mastered by the great painters of the renaissance, with Leonardo da Vinci at the helm. It took almost five centuries from then for color theoretician Albert H. Munsell to formulate a color identification vocabulary to support the method, and another half a century before the brilliant art educator Frank Reilly introduced a primitive controlled palette to the Art Students League in NYC. Covino's Controlled Palette is an improved logical culmination of all that scientific thinking, the first graphic tool to facilitate color mixing of consistent values and the reduction of intensity by the addition of a corresponding neutral gray value. Munsell would approve.
