Tutorial: Using The Color Wheel

October 20, 2010

At long last, EFII’s Tutorial of the Week series is back!

This week we are getting back to some basic color theory with a video from Sessions Online College of Art and Design, that has some good suggestions on how to use the color wheel more creatively and effectively.

I’m the first to admit that the video is a bit bland and not too exciting, but there is a ton of good info in it and I like the examples she gives at the end.

So, If you’ve ever got stuck, or needed some inspiration when choosing colors, check out this tutorial. It’s fun to throw a shape into the middle of the color wheel and give it a spin like you’re playing Twister and see what you come up with.

    Barron Storey is one of my all time favorite artists and a huge influence on the work I do. This is so great! If you’re reading this, thanks for for the inspiration. :)

    That colour wheel looks pretty wrong to me.. look at the colour they’ve matched yellow to? Its pink, not bluish purple.

    THe comments on youtube say it all really.

      Thanks for the input, Faye. What I think is really valuable about the video is the way to use shapes to help visualize different color schemes.
