Playing with Dye-na-flow paints again, I made the color study above. I mixed each of the colors that I had with all of the other colors. I also started mixing some complementary colors together to see what kind of greys I could achieve. I will be keeping this chart for reference so when I use Dye-na-flow again, I'll be able to mix together with confidence.
Here are the two I did when I had my local group over. I used the differing primaries for each sheet. And I added some black and white for shades and tints. There is so much experimentation you can do with color, isn't there?
This is my monochromatic hand stitch homework for my recent class. These are all actually green threads although the color is slightly off. I am using chain stitch as a filler. I still have the upper right hand corner to complete. I've been following some of the dye lines on the fabric so it gives it a very organic feel. I'm not sure in which direction this piece will end up. I'll have to decide once it's finished.
That's what I've been doing with color this week. How about you?
