64 Colors by Julia Samuels is an aquatint etching printed and published by the artist in 2023. The image is comprised of an 8×8 grid of squares showing one example each of every possible color combination made from printing 3 different plates containing 4 tones each. Samuels has created an etching that shows the brilliant expanse of colors possible while being most conservative and efficient using aquatint plates by maximizing overlaps and earned colors.
