Color Flow

As a quilter/artist many of us have looked at 
the color wheel and have used it to help
make some decisions about the use of color.

There are primary colors.

Red, yellow and blue are the primary colors that are mixed
to create all the other hues.

Orange, purple and green are the secondary colors that
are created when you mix together the primary colors.

Coming up with an appealing color combination can be
difficult because there are endless color combos.
Understanding a little about the color wheel can help
make decisions.

Having trouble?
Just ask "the running man".
He seems to know about "running" colors together.
The perfect model of secondary colors with a bit
of blue and black thrown into the mix.
Easy to spot him on the trail.
He's one "colorful" guy.
Until Next Time-


  1. Ed is wearing "summer" camo, to blend in when he runs!!

  2. A new way to illustrate quilt design -- this just made me laugh!
