how does colour work?

The comments I receive about my work normally involve my use of colour, and there’s a lot of it. I was taught at art school about the colour wheel and colours that lend themselves to one another. I think after visiting Spain regularly for the past 6 years it has changed my mind and is probably the biggest influence on me. In my mind anything goes, though a lot of thought still goes into mixing and matching fabrics.

I always look at photos I have taken to inspire me or just save pictures on my computer.

It does sound a bit pretentious to talk about ‘colour’ and being ‘inspired’ but colour is amazing. It even stretches to my wardrobe where I hardly own anything black.

I really have enjoyed writing this and have found some fantastic photos! My next post is about rope, I bet you cant wait, ha ha.
