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:
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.
