Good job,
For Art. color selector :

* I really like the 'cell based' selection, and the 'hashing' or 
'splitting' of the HSV/L/Y gammut into little square. This is the first 
time I saw this and this kind of selection work, and it looks good, and 
easy to use ( select a color, and come back to the same color block )

* It looks like something inbetween color selector and a palette. So, I 
understand if it's in a separate docker than the 'Advanced color 
selector'. For my workflow, I will dock it to switch them on the top of 
my right column GUI ; it will result with 3 tabs on top , Advanced color 
selector / Art.Color Selector / Specific color mixer ( for Hex color 
choice, and RGB / CMYK color reference ).

* As it is something looking like a palette, I looked for a button to 
save the result displayed ( that mean a button to restore an old one too ).

* Outline of the cell and ring in red are a bit to hard for me, may be a 
dark grey or something more neutral.

* For artistic color choice, I dream about having something similar of 
this gammut mask selector : , A good book for 
reference about painters and colors is 
This color selector in developement make me think a lot about it, and 
the research of James Gurney (the author of the book).
