Having a closer look at the colour wheel
Do you find it frustrating trying to find a colour combination, or colour relationship for a particular colour wheel colour family? Well, we have something to help you.
We also found it difficult to select colour harmonies to use in our art and craft. So, to help us understand colour, we undertook exercises and created colour wheels using different mediums, including a range of coloured pencil brands, and found colour relationships. As part of the exercise, we drilled down into each colour relationship, and found colour sub-relationships, and colour combinations. Then we created example illustrations to show what these sub-relationships, and colour combinations look like.
This page provides a list of 23 colour sub-relationships that include yellow.
Helping you find colour harmony in your art and craft
We created products showing colour harmonies, and provided details of a variety of drawing materials. However, you may not have any of those materials. You may just want to knit, or sew, or embroider. or just make something that needs colour harmony.
The images and buttons below link to pdf workbooks we have created about each colour harmony.
You may also be interested in our interactive pdf book. In this interactive book, you can see all 91 colour harmonies, 91 colour temperatures, and 960 colour combinations found from a Red Yellow Blue colour wheel. It is an interactive tool designed to help you see colour quickly as you create your art and craft.
