I love colour. Yet I have found colour to be one of the hardest subjects to understand. Do you understand colour?
How many colours in a rainbow?
There are so many colours. There are many ways of measuring colour. As well, there are differing colour wheels.
But how do you apply colour to a picture? Which is the best colour to draw you painting in? What mood do you want your artwork to represent?
These questions are what artists and sewists need to consider before they start a project. Questions about colour and drawing are imperative to designing your art or craft. Get these right, and you’ll have a great end result.
Analysing and putting colour into groups
To help you with this, I analysed my stash and created interactive colour charts for a range of coloured pencils brands, and other media, including:
Caran d’Ache NeoArt (discontinued)
On my journey, I have on my own tried to understand the colour in my coloured pencils, as well as understanding colour relationships. I find that understanding colour relationships allows me to quickly imagine a product or picture.
You can also find many more colours than available in a set. For example, you can see how you can make many colours from a basic set of pencils.
As I move on my journey of colour, I will share with you how I apply colour in my art and craft projects, and hope that this can help you in your art and craft journey.
What colours go with…?
We have closely analysed red yellow blue colour wheels. We created products (courses and pdf documents), that you can purchase to help you choose colour. You can find all these items on our website menu. They are under ‘printables’ and ‘courses’.
We also created a concise document that lists 91 colour sub-relationships, 91 colour temperatures, and 960 colour combinations found on a red yellow blue colour wheel. You can find information about this concise colour sub-relationship document and how to purchase it by clicking the image below.
