Inks By Colour

While the ink profiles found else are aimed at giving a sense of the characteristics of the ink and the brand which produces it, it is sometimes nice to just have them laid out along side one another to see which is the preferred tone.  That’s what I’m offering here, within the limits of my skills, software and ability to perceive differences in colour.  I’ve arranged the inks roughly by spectral order, with blue-black and brown taking over for the near-visible wavelengths at either end.  Some colours straddle the distinction between two categories; these will appear in both.
