Color Exercise–Red


Here are all the color chips in the exercise
I start the exercise by finding all the chips that are “shades”. That means that they have varying amounts of grey mixed with the color. I line these up from lightest to darkest
Then I begin to match the value of the chips on the left and put those in order from least amount of red to most amount of red. Do you see my mistake? I couldn’t figure out where that one chip went….until….
I checked the pure hue from the first color wheel exercise. I was able to see that I had the wrong chip in the 5R space and I could move the one pesky chip into the correct spot. I am getting better at seeing the differences in the chips. In order to get better at seeing color, you have to train your eyes.
