Today I completed the first layout in the series of classes I’m doing on colour. While mostly I think I get the colours OK in my work, I am often asking others for a second opinion. So I figured that it would be good for me to get some theory behind me.
Last week was the theory – I’m still not 100% certain that I could pick a warm tone from a cool tone too well. But I think I might be able to understand why one colour doesn’t do it yet another very similar one is just awesome. Sometimes I think I go with instinct, and mostly it pays off. It’s nice to understand now though that there is a reason behind these instincts.
This is the result of today’s first practical class – Analogous: 2 or more colours that are side by side on the colour wheel. The red shirt and the red-orange of the wiggles car were my inspiration. I’ve used a Red/Red-Orange/Orange combination. (Brown is a *Non-colour* and isn’t included in the scheme … interesting)
Next week we are doing Complimentary.
Please excuse me if I spelt Analogous wrong – I’m too tired to go downstairs to check…. 😆
