Still frigid…still hibernating!
Back to Stephan Quiller and Color Choices. This book includes a tearout color chart just for watercolorists. I am starting to use it to help me identify colors and complements for my practice exercises. It is very detailed and useful EXCEPT that I bought the book when it was published in the late 80’s and there are many new colors available today. I checked his website and I can buy just a color chart. Seems like it might be a good investment so my “tool” is up-to-date.
I am still working on the chapter that discusses the use of analagous colors with a balancing complementary color. I completed two exercises yesterday, once again using some of his examples for my drawing ( I was spending hours developing new “scenes” to use for my excercises! I am saving loads of time using drawings based on his exercises – and they should be appropriate, right?) With these two exercises I complete this chapter. On to TRIADIC color schemes!
