Colour Wheels

I am doing a Sally Hirst course called Monotype & More.  Yes I know!  Don't go on.  I have too many courses all running at the same time.

One of the first exercises was to make a colour wheel by puttin paint onto a gel plate and pulling the print.  I have done a fair bit of colour theory but I have never mixed the paint on the gel plate.  Some of the colours were a bit hit and missbut still show the range.

This wheel is made with cool colours - Pyrrole Red, Nickel Titian Yellow and Coeruleum Hue.

This wheel is made from warm primaries - Primary Magenta, Primary Yellow and Primary Cyan.

There's two of each colour because I printed on Deli paper and copy paper to see if the surface of the paper made any difference to the colour.  It didn't!

After this I had a play with stencils and my favourite colours.

I'll share my results in a separate post.

Thanks for joining me today
