  • Thanks for that helpful post on contrast! I love experimenting with colour, so this article was right up my alley. I also love that you referenced Stuff You Should Know! It’s my favourite podcast; they do such a good job of conversing about such a wide range of subjects in a completely relatable way.

  • That was an excellent explanation of how contrast works. Thank you!

  • Lightbulb! Thank you! 🙂

  • great article, great explanation. thank you!

  • Great discussion! I’d like to recommend further reading, too: Margaret Livingstone’s book Vision and Art, subtitle The Biology of Seeing. Amazing stuff.

  • Ohhh! The Dots and Dashes scarf says it all. Love it, the pattern AND the colors. Thanks for the interesting information about color.

    • This makes my day.

  • Finally, a vocabulary for color! Thank you, Ann

  • Really enjoying this series. Color is such an important element of so much that I do and it evokes so much emotion. For me and others. So, now I’m going to try and play with it using the color-wheel. I’ve never done that.

  • Yes, thank you for this color theory series. Color pairing is a part of my knitting (and home decorating and wardrobe, etc) that I approach with trepidation. I’m always just going on intuition with a vague background noise of the color wheel in my mind. Having an artistic daughter has helped a little (once when she was young and we were looking at fabrics, she pointed out to me the difference between “muddy” colors and pure colors – lightbulb moment!). Anyway, this is a fascinating topic – so much to learn!
