I’m really glad you’ve popped over 🙂 Let’s talk about colour.
Actually, let’s not.
Let’s DO SOMETHING about colour, because it’s the doing part that helps us make progress.
First, please do me a big favour and answer this question for me:
What do you find the most challenging about colour?
In the meantime, I have few things here for you that other people have found useful – and it’s all free!
Hopefully there’s something that will help you too.
Matching colour accurately
If you have trouble accurately judging and matching the colours you see, this simple, step by step method of mixing and matching should help you:
Using bracketing to mix a perfect neutral value
Bracketing must be the best kept (non) secret in colour mixing. Few people have even heard of it, but it’s incredibly effective. This video will show you how to use bracketing to mix a perfect match for a value:
Using Hue, Value and Chrome to match the colours of leaves
Another video showing the bracketing method being used to match exactly the colours of autumn leaves. Very often, colours are much lower chroma (closer to grey) than you think.
If you often find your colour is too intense and garish, try this exercise to find out what the colours yu see actually are. You might be surprised!
How to mix any colour accurately
As if all that wasn’t enough, here’s one more video where I use Munsell and bracketing (are you seeing a theme here) to demonstrate accurate colour matching of a very high chroma colour – high chroma colours are the hardest to match.
