I worked all day Friday on finishing my homework for my color class. The second notebook is a larger size and includes all the color wheels, scales and other color exercises.
I got about half of the pages completed. Right now, I have all the pages separated from the notebook until I have all the page placement figured out.
Here you can see the stack of pages that I finished. I have at least that many more to go.
This is one of my colors wheels done with three primary colors of paint.
This photo is very dark but shows a red to blue scale.
This is one of my six primary color wheels. I had never painted one of these before.
I did a bunch of color studies using different colors from magazines and catalogs.
This is a combination of paint, photos printed from the computer and magazine photos.
Then I did all of my paint colors in tints and shades scales. I really enjoyed seeing the different combinations that occur. I am happy that I’m almost finished with the homework because I have yurt duties. Today we started felting the yurt walls. I will be posting about the process on Thursday on the Felting and Fiber Studio site.
Wow!. You’ll be a virtual encyclopedia of color when you’re finished. A great hands on approach to understanding colors. Good luck finishing.
Thanks Marilyn. But actually it hardly scratches the surface of what you can learn about color. The more I learn the more I realize that I don’t know. But I have enjoyed it.
