COLOUR WHEEL ENVY
There is a wonderful pastel artist called Karen Margulis that keeps recommending her favourite tool, the Hal Reed Analogous Colour Wheel. I have colour wheel envy and last time I checked the only way to get it to Canada it was going to cost $60 CDN, probably now it's $80 CDN with our scary exchange.
Summer Secrets: 6 New Art Tools for Under $20 gushing over a similar but not so cool wheel called the Colour Harmony Wheel. Check Etsy here for the tool. This is only $30 CDN.
These things can easily be popped into an envelope and mailed and I have a gripe about how much is being charged for shipping to Canada. Plus they usually send with either prepay duty or via courier where there is a minimum charge on top of duty. I've checked many Canadian suppliers that don't ding you for shipping and no-one seems to stock these wheels. Grrrr!
So in my frustration I turned to my favourite art tool ..... GOOGLE. Instead of typing searches for purchasing a wheel, I typed ANALOGOUS COLOUR WHEEL ONLINE. Bingo!!!
I discovered this wonderful free online tool. Check this out! I'm doing the dance of joy. Of course first up I had to check out my favourite colour and it's various harmonies. And I came up with this yummy colour combination which I can't wait to try out.
