Colors are all around here at the Center and not only on my looms.
My days are being spent with reading, note taking and weaving about color--here are a few of the things I've gotten done in the past week:
The gradation of the grays is at the right. The other gradation is of the 12 colors from the color wheel, blending into each other in increments.
Yesterday I worked with studies of complements using Itten's ideas as starting points. I began by weaving 1" squares of the intermediate complements, using five strands of weft. One square at each side was the unmixed color, and the four squares between had the new color added a strand at a time while a strand of the other color was removed.
The top weaving is of the complementary mixes of the intermediate hues. The middle sample is of something else--using similar value of gray and a hue in several ways. Middle value red and gray. It's amazing how bluish the gray appears. A bit of effect of simultaneous contrast at work.
So today will again be spent with weaving, reading, note taking. I've discovered that there's an online version of Betty Edward's book about color and so I have both a print copy and an ebook version. I'll be working more with the Albers Interaction of Color iPad app this week, too.
