Selected Colour Pair Experiments
Chapter 2 Module 1
I decided on purple and limes as my complementary colour
combinations extending this through the range of red and blue  
 purples and yellows through to lime.

To fix the various tints, hues and shades in my mind I made
a spectrum colour chart and then made wheels using torn
scraps from magazine pages.

By playing in this way, I think it helped me to appreciate
different gradations and combinations.

I discovered that the range of purple inks was quite limited and resorted to mixing my own from those listed. The purples were much more opaque than the greens/yellows and trialling mixing gave me a better insight into their various properties.
