I finally got around to doing the homework for lesson 2 of the Colored Pencil Jumpstart class by Sandy Allnock at Art-Classes.com
This lesson entailed making color wheels in warm and cool tones. We selected all the colors from our sets of color for the first (top) ones and then we used only the Yellow, read and blue from the top wheel and blended them to create the bottom wheels.
For the second project we used the full sets we had used in the first exercise but overlapped them to create another color where they intersected. I labeled these with the color they most matched in the set as I might like to go directly to that pencil instead of blending it from scratch.
The third exercise had us select a color (center hex) and then do blends around the outside using analagous, complementary and complements of the analagous colors. I didn't finish this as I was kinda 'colored out' by this time.
By now, I hope your realize that the camera 'lies' about the color of things. This makes photographing artwork a challenge and sometimes you just have to 'let it go' and know that the original work is what is true and most important.
