Color is a big subject.
Where do I start?
Color seems to come naturally to me. That is, I don't always consciously think about what I am doing. Usually not until someone asks me about it.
There are many aspects to color that interest me. I did enjoy studying color in art school. I loved especially the color charts and the nature of how we might see it explained. I liked how one color might affect another and how we might learn to recognize that. But I have also always been amazed at it's impact on everyone, simply that. A visual impact... how we come to have favorite colors, how color is mysteriously linked to mood and emotion, but most especially how it is different for everyone and therefore, there are no real rules for its use.
The photo is my old paintbox from college. I pull it out now and then because I paint too. When I think of color I think of palette. Which can both mean the set of colors one has to work with and the surface that holds them ready. I've always noticed that I only use a few of these colors as is. That I don't use use them all to mix the ones I want.
Anyway, yes, color is a big subject. Below I will link to some of the things I have said while considering it.
