Color Wheel Study
Join EBHQ for a Color Wheel Study!
Each month a new color will be selected to explore. You might want to study the monthly color using one of the harmonious color schemes like monochromatic, analogous, complementary, split complementary, triad, or tetrad. You are welcome to do just one color scheme or even all of them.
We have set some suggestions/goals for each of the monthly piece(s):
You don't need to register. Join in at any time! This exercise may become the beginning of a series. It can be as small as a postcard, 12" x 12", or just a block for a future quilt. Of course, you can make more than one piece on any given month. The piece does not need to be finished/quilted.
TIPS: You could use color cards from any paint store to help with color values and reference. Also, a value matching tool can be of use when evaluating a color range. If you dye your own fabric, you can have even more fun creating a wide range of values.
Below are some video tutorials from YouTube to help you explore the color wheel:
Color Wheel Basics - 7 minutes
Heather Thomas for National Quilters Circle - 9 minutes, 12-color wheel
Janice Ingle of Quilting Digest - 23 minutes, 18-color wheel
Here are some possibilities for how and where to share your color wheel study piece.
