This is very helpful! I have been wanting to focus on color composition for a while and this will definitely get me started in the right place. It's easy to understand but has many valuable ideas in it.

I remember doing this in art class last year (6th) but I was mostly doodling because my teacher has one of those deep, sleepy voices. Thanks, this is a nice refresher for me.

urm, typo on '3. The Colour Wheel' on the third example , '-Blue-green, red-violet and violet, to make a square'
you mean 'red-orange' instead of 'red-violet', yes?

I get all this. I do...but for some reason I'm still struggling to choose good colors for my work... /practice

I think we all do... it may help if you let your color palette be inspired by famous paintings or the like, at first.

So it's ok to practice with colors that other people use? I guess that;'s the best way in the long run.

Now just to develop a technique.... :iconffplz:

Of course, that's how one develops one's own sensitivity to colors.
