The Color Wheel works. Specifically, the Color Wheel was developed to help us predetermine our color palette before we begin to paint.
If we choose to implement those suggested combinations of colors on your color wheel, we increase our potential of success with every painting. I know we don't like to follow "rules" but this is one rule I follow. By choosing my color combination before painting, I'm more certain the painting will hold together.
There are many color wheels. My Goof-Proof Color Wheel is only one of them. I've modified and combined different color wheels and in the process, developed a different way of thinking about color combinations for me. As shown in the video, my Goof-Proof Color Wheel uses only four colors:
•Dominant Color - 80% of the footprint
•Focal Point Color - 10% of the footprint
•Two Spice Colors - 5% each of the footprint. Spice Colors are placed around the Focal Point Color and helps to draw attention to the focal point.
Important note: Although I use only four colors, I have the freedom to use several variations of each color. Now I have choices while painting. Doesn't everyone like choices?
Keep your brush wet and colorful!
