One of the girls on the Creative Chemistry private Facebook group was having trouble with all sorts of "ugly" as she put it, while trying to make Tim's latest June tag. I made a short video to explain colour theory...If you don't want to go to the vid, here is a short explanation:
quick colour theory lesson to avoid muddy colours. draw a triangle! put red, yellow, blue on each point. then between yellow and red on the straight side, write orange, between blue and yellow write green and purple on the last side. now you can easily see one side of the colour spectrum. stick to the three colours on that one side and you will be fine. the minute you go round the corners you will have mud cos the three primaries make brown. the opposites will also give mud! inside the triangle, draw an arrow from the point of each corner of the triangle down to the middle of the opposing side...that is its opposite colour or complimentary...ie:red/green yellow/purple and blue/orange...these too will make mud when blended.
I also made it to the shop during the week-end to get the thinner foam core board to finish my two ink towers. Yes Elizabeth, they slide in and out easily and because the shelf ends a little before the pad in the front, you can get at it and grip it to pull it out. I will do a tut on it one of these days.
See you at your desk...with or without Mr Linky...he is on holiday with our leader!
