My colour theory course continues. This weeks session moved away from selecting colour through observation and into experimenting with ways of generating colour systems. The idea was to provide us with ways to open up new ideas for using colour within our own work.
We were asked to mix three colours that we liked and using them, paint a simple cube on 6 or 7 different coloured pieces of paper. We then had to choose which one we liked most, which gave us 4 colours to work with. The subject to be painted was a white teapot. The colour had to replace the areas of tone observed in the teapot.
The results were very interesting. Lots of food for thought and experimentation here!
