We are currently excavating a large tree feature across several units. In this case, we have a nice soil color change between a reddish brown silty clay to a bright red subsoil at the base of the feature. Those differences in soil clue us in to where the grove of trees formerly stood! #digmontpelier#landscapearchaeology#features#munsellcolor#fieldwork

Images of three dimensional projects I recently completed for my intensive design course. ⏺️The first set of pictures are handles made of pine wood attached to a wooden base via neo dymium magnets⏺️The second is a color project demonstrating the munsell color system with value being upside down and most saturation closest to the viewer. ⏺️ Thirdly, a tunnel book constructed of Bristol paper and chipboard covers demonstrating two environments a shipwreck with rocks and other earthy elements going through it.
Repost from @inbedwithmonalisa -- The Munsell reference books are now published by Xrite who also prints the precious Pantone swatch books. At the symposium in Boston, they had a display of the Munsell system ones (you don’t want to know the price of the big book!) among which is a specialized Munsell Soil-Colour charts one. It is used by archaeologists the world over and presumably other earth-colour interested professions (can’t think of a few right now but then… )I knew there was also a Skin tone one and asked if they had it in stock. The charming man replied that unfortunately they had forgotten it but that it was virtually same same tones as the Soil book. “You know, he added poetically, dust to dust.” #munsell , #munsellcentennialcelebration#munsellcolor#earthtones#archeologia#dust#dusttodust#pigmentedworld
Repost from @vaughan_soil -- @DenitzaV and I are comparing color data collected using the @nixsensor with @munsellcolor • • • we plan to develop methodology to share with our students on the reproducibility and measurement of soil color... 📸 @uwyopedology #soilscience#soilcolor#munsellcolor#munsell#soilchart
So apparently, Afred Munsell the father of the first exact colour notation (but more interestingly in fact the first one to understand colour space is not a perfect sphere as the chroma of colours differ so widely from one another) was a bit disappointed that his colour system was not more widespread in schools… In industry however it was immensely successful as the first exact way of communicating colour… including the colour of soil and of your french fires… yes! And so this one from the archives at MassArt, since you virtually asked for it, is for you @heidilynnheidilynn

Anyone know what she is doing? She is collecting some soil to determine it’s Munsell color. The Munsell Color Chart is a standardized comparative tool we use in the field to record what color the soil is. #digmontpelier#archaeologylife#munsellcolor#trowel
La mayoría de los asistentes a este simposio son académicos de USA
Sin embargo, amantes del color procedentes de todas partes asistimos movidos por la pasión y el deseo de seguir aprendiendo.
Como siempre le digo a mis hijos, socios, amigos, pupilos y colegas: el día que yo crea que ya se todo sobre color mejor me muero.
Así de apasionada soy.
Más de 50 años leyendo sobre el tema en todos sus aspectos y cada vez tengo más hambre de saber para poder compartirlo con mis estudiantes de Colour Styling.
Estoy más que feliz!
Me siento como un niño o un adulto igual a mi, en Disney.
