I'm wondering.... do you have a favourite colour?
Does it surface in many areas of your life?
Are you brave with the use of it?
Or do you just love colour? Period?
Bright and audacious?
Pastel and muted?
Do you find that some people know there colours better than others?
Are you one of those people?
Go on tell the truth.
I bought my first ever colour wheel recently.
I thought I knew colours...
... really I did.
Turns out I do not
You see this course has challenged me in many ways - but none
so strongly as in the way I understand (and view) colour.
Ok let's clarify a few things first.
I'm not colour blind....
.....I love certain colours more than others....
....I dislike certain colours and colour combinations - immensely.
I have a deep love for muted pastels...
...I have a wardrobe FULL of grey.....
I think black, white and all the shades in between are truly, truly beautiful.
However... (and this is a big however)
... I do not KNOW colours - how they work together, how they clash, WHY they clash,
what they are made of, what they represent, where they fit .... *
I know how they make me feel though...
... and right now I'd say that I feel pretty overwhelmed.
If you work with flowers you need... no MUST... know colour.
Is this something I can learn?
I sure hope so....
Otherwise I'm in trouble!
*Ironically when I went to link back to my post about the course I'm studying I noted that the image I used that day was full of colour - and rather nicely composed too I might add.
I suppose there's hope yet.
