This chart can no longer be downloaded in full size on dA. To view it properly, go to my own website. To buy a print, visit Redbubble.

Note that has grossly and shamelessly copied my work point by point for their own purposes:… .  Hiss hiss boo. I learned a lot from the site (itself based on existing books) during my research and always credited it for that, and they turn out to be particularly sneaky thieves. So I'm making sure people who see the chart are aware of this.

Based on CFA standards. This was made using more sources than I can list, but one of the most helpful sites I found that helped me sort this out is… .

Just wanted to say thanks for this! Some of the new staff at our shelter have trouble with colors, particularly when it comes to pointed colors, so this is going to be a great addition to one of our walls!
