Flag Counter the only hank in l.a. (If you’ve taken a painting class you’ve likely had...)

the only hank in l.a.

question me here   writer curator propagator fabulist seeker homo about town, lover of men, curator of the lgbtq reading series homo-centric in l.a.

If you’ve taken a painting class you’ve likely had to create a color wheel.  When the date of this color plate caught my eye (1830) I did a little research.  Charles Hayter was a well-known miniature portrait-painter and teacher who lived in London. He taught Princess Charlotte, the granddaughter was appointed to the court of King George IV, published, exhibited and taught.  In 1830 he published A New Practical Treatise on the Three Primitive Colours. 
The cool thing is the Practical Treatise is available in its entirety at OpenLibrary.org. Have a look—the book is 183 years old.  There, art class is dismissed for the day.
