Last summer I took a one day class on the use of a color wheel for color planning. I was wanting a small project to do to reinforce what I learned, so I drew a large sunflower and leaves (I sure didn't want anything too complicated to start off). Using a tetrad (a contrast of 4 or more colors, kind of like two split complimentaries opposite each other on the wheel), I used Navy for the background, Yellows and Yellow Orange for the petals, which left purple for the flower's center. I was so tempted to make the center the normal brown but then, what would I have learned? I was so surprised at how well I liked the purple center. This little project has given me a little more confidence to tackle other (maybe even bigger) projects.
