August Recap

We had a great time at Hands on Art in August. Iraima, the owner was great to go over the color wheel and break it down for us. She recommended this color wheel. It comes in a bigger size too. Here’s a great site that breaks down the definitions of the basic color relationships: Complementary, Monochromatic, Analogous, Analogous, Triadic and Tetradic. 

We then went through the quilts we shared and looked for these color relationships. Afterwards we played with scraps of fabrics and found these color relationships.
