Practice - Create a Color Wheel
Similar to the way we built a palette yesterday from collected colors, a color wheel can help explore the colors you are working with and the relationships between them. For example, colors on opposite sides of the wheel are more likely to create contrast.
Color wheels are one of the few things in art where there is a “correct” answer, a given pattern to use as a guide. The colors relate in a similar way regardless of the medium.
Collect some colors and create your own color wheel. You could either arrange your crayons or markers or use them to draw a color wheel. Alternatively, you might find a collection of buttons, yarn, or scraps of paper and make a color wheel out of those. Natural objects and even food items can be great materials. More examples from my practice are below. I’d love to see what you create.
