Spinning the Color Wheel (on its head)
posted:
Color theory is a bore. I tried to learn it, but the rules get convoluted so quickly just steps beyond mixing compliments,--and the results are forever unpredictable.  My intuitive sense goes toward grey, warm and cool, and it fails or succeeds without regard to amount of effort applied or degree of desperation. Step outside the safety of local color, and all bets are off. One thing I've learned: put a little red in it, and it might look like you planned it (or at least keep it from cadaver dead).
Some "color theory" exercises; portraits of musicians.
