Christine Barnes knows a lot about colour, I also have another book of hers plus I receive her newsletter by email.
I have set aside this year as a year of experimentation and maybe a change of direction and so I decided to do the colour exercises in Christine's book.
I must admit that I already know a lot about colour and the colour wheel but I am sure there is even more to learn.
Christine writes about a colour group and then suggests an exercise, she recommends that you do the exercises with a group because that way you find even more colour combinations and that would be good but for now I am a group of 1!
She also recommends that you use an easy quilt block and attach the fabric with a glue stick. Super easy.
The first exercise I did was about Value.
Next I had to make a block with all warm colours and all cool colours.
|Warm and Cool|
We then had to remake the blocks but adding one cool fabric to the warm block and one warm fabric to the cool block.
|Warm and Cool plus one|
The next subject was Intensity; we had to make an intense or bright block and a low intensity or dull block.
It didn't take long to make up the blocks and actually it was fun.
I'll have to make time to continue with the book.
Bye for now,
