"Kindness is an eternal obligation." Normally, none of us would think of an obligation in a totally positive sense. But the dictionary does include a positive definition that means a kindness done or received.  That's the one I am talking about here.

Today's posting contains the same colors I've been using this week, but today I added a lot more of the  orange and pink, but left out the blue/green from yesterday. What I find most interesting is that the very dark green which is warmer because of the red used to gray down its intensity and the yellow/green which is cooler because of the white added create a good vibration between warm and cool. Another hot combination is the red with a lot of white to create the pink side by side with the yellow/green. Using these types of combinations draws the eye to that area like nothing else can. So it is very useful to look in decorating magazines and select combinations that pop off of the page for you.

By checking your color wheel, you will be able to locate the root color and adjust your mixing accordingly. Remember that the root color always originates from the (12) main colors on the color wheel with all of their tints, tones, and shades. I am personally trying to get away from calling colors turquoise or viridian...etc. If you begin to use the names listed on the color wheel, it will give you a more accurate description. And there you have it...just a few more things to think about.
