    Maitland Graves Art of Color and Design Color Scans?

    Hey, anybody feel like being generous and scanning in the color and value examples from the maitland graves book Art of Color and Design? The pdf of it has unusably shoddy pix and it is hard to tell what's going on and thus a little bit difficult to understand the text.

    Thanks in advance...

    I'll scan them in later today. I'll post them directly on this thread, either today or tommorrow depending on how long scanning takes, unless someone does it before me.

    I didn't scan examples that can be found online, like some paintings and buildings, or some of the examples that are rough but still intelligible.

    For anyone reading this, I'm using the free storage option for this, I think the file disappears after a month. Maybe someone could put it somewhere more permanent?

    Really thanks for scanning this great book for us. I am just beginning to take a look at it. However, the missing pages are kinda making the reading confusing. I might be asking too much but could u scan the missing pages please?
