New Approach to Colour - Exploring hues

It was a grey and dreary Saturday and I wasn't working and everyone was out so I thought it a good opportunity to work on the colour theory exercises Jane Dunnewold had set us. Here is my hue identifier colour wheel. The monochromatic hues go from white at one end to black at the other and as you can see have gradations in between. The holes in the colour swatches are to help identify relevant hues of the fabric underneath. While I am not a painter per se it is always an advantage to better understand colour and its effects and how different colours are made up as it then helps with fabric/textile selection. I am really enjoying this course and creating tools that can be used going forward.
