A couple of months ago I started going to a watercolor class on Wednesday nights.
It was great, especially since I would meet one of my favorite girl friends for drinks before class. Talk about getting the creative juices flowing!
On the first night we talked about color theory and I realized I was WAY behind the power curve. I have no idea what I was doing when all the other kids were learning about the color wheel, but I was clearly not paying attention.
I get that yellow and blue make green, etc, but the whole complementary color thing was blowing my mind! Since that eye-opening experience I have been trying to incorporate the color theory into my daily wardrobe. I even bought a large color wheel for my study and a smaller one for my closet!
Here is my go at a red/green combo:
And my attempt at a blue/orange combo. I actually loved this combo even though I didn’t get any pictures of it. My blazer is bright orange and I am wearing a sparkly blue scarf as a headband. Totally brightened up my cubicle that day.
My daughter is in college for Fashion Design, the color wheel is huge in her world, I’m still confused. 😉 Guess I’ll be learning about it when she takes me shopping.
