Why am I scared of colour? Working with it myself, I mean. Mmmmm. I think it might be because I don't understand it all that well.
Okay, time to deal with that particular deamon.
I grabbed a book I'd been given by my parents when I was 15 about working with watercolour pencils, and after reading it cover to cover, decided I'd benefit from an early exercise, which is using the 3 primaries (red, yellow blue) to create the other tones (greens, browns, purples, oranges & ochres).
My head was aching by the time I'd finished but I'd learnt loads from it.
The next step, of course, is to put it into practice.
