This is the second installment in computer food coloring. This time, it's the MSX palette. It's also used on the ColecoVision, and the TI 99/4A. Therefore, it could be called the TI palette. It consists of 15 colors and a transparent color.


Color 0 is Transparent.
Black: 8 parts Black
Medium Green: 9 parts Green
Light Green: 5 parts Green
Dark Blue: 7 parts Blue, 5 parts Neon Blue, 5 parts Neon Purple
Light Blue: 2 parts Neon Blue, 2 parts Neon Purple
Dark Red: 30 parts Red, 1 part Blue, 1 part Green
Cyan: 3 parts Neon Blue
Medium Red: 13 parts Red
Light Red: 5 parts Red
Dark Yellow: 8 parts Yellow, 3 parts Red, 2 parts Green
Light Yellow: 3 parts Yellow
Dark Green: 24 parts Green, 1 part Blue
Magenta: 7 parts Neon Purple, 2 parts Green
Gray: 2 parts Black
White: None

The transparent color was achieved by using plain water. The medium used was Sargent Art Art-Time white tempera paint, which is opaque.


And here's how it turned out:

That certainly looks cool! It's pretty accurate.
