Finding Ways to Understand Colour  Presented by Colleen Campbell, Artist, Retired Professor   (Canmore AB)

Our response to colour is subjective. We each have different responses and the ways we see colour and colour combinations change with experience. Our eyes, light sources, and qualities of surface — each impacts our perception and our reaction to what we see.

Colour has structure — ways of relating and contrasting to each other — and a long list of words that can be used to describe those relationships. With consistent use of the vocabulary of colour and the visual relationships that it evokes, an artist or artisan can make decisions about colour with predictable intent.

Learning about colour and using what one learns consciously, reflecting on the results and trying to focus on qualities and characteristics that one wishes to change will help the quilter whose work depends on colour combinations as part of the overall success of their quilting project.
