I am still working on my homework from my Color class with Gail Harker. I finished the small notebook of color schemes and painted more scales.
The color schemes are based on a book by Johannes Itten.
There are dyads, triads, tetrads and hexads and I have painted pages for all the different possibilities. Some I painted twice because the first effort wasn’t good.
I really enjoyed painting these as it is always interesting to see how the pages turn out. Once you get up to 4 and 6 colors it is difficult getting all the colors on such a small page without it turning to mud.
Here are the various scales that I painted today drying. Most of these are tints to shades (adding white and black). I still need to do more of the mixing complementary color scales. I have most of the homework completed but I still have to organize the other notebook. It was a great class and she does offer it online if you can’t make it to La Conner, Washington. When I finished painting, my husband brought me a “gift”.
