The homework is that you make you own color wheel with PIGMENT. I will not comment on anything done by computer. Use only three primaries and from that make your 12 hues. Make sure the hues are clearly distinguishable. Good luck Jim. This tape will autodestruct in 1 minute.

LOL!! I just wrote over on facebook, "do you think he'd notice if I did my color wheel in Photoshop?"

Johannes, I was kidding!!! Really! Kidding! :lol:

(Although I think I'll have trouble using just three primary pastel sticks). :rolleyes:

Oh, Johannes, don't blame Robert! I just grabbed one of his pages of Notes from the class and copied it here. I don't think that's his REAL homework.

I'm just finding ways to stall (and avoid doing my own).

Shiver I used a touch of alaz crimson for the red purple as well as cadmium yellow, cadmium red and ultramarine

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/09-Apr-2011/218876-col_wheel.jpg

The reds look a bit off compared to real life as the red purple is aliz crimson as I mentioned.
I had trouble getting the ultramarine blue to a primary blue as well and obviously need more yellow. The green looks rather bright in the pic for some reason, maybe because it's thinned.

I'd start again but it's 2am here! :)

I added a little more cad yellow to each. I guess the blue green could do with more yellow a well (it is slightly more green than the pic - camera phone.)

All three colors are non-staining, granulating, transparent and light-fast. To provide a green, D. Smith has a very nice replacement for viridian: malachite, which washes off easily. To these I add raw and burnt sienna, and sometimes quin. gold, which thins out to a ochre-like yellow. bob.c

The hues are well done. Most artists show the pigment at their maximum intensity when they do color wheels. Some of yours are grayed down but the hues are correct.

Three primaries do not work. At least one segment of the circle will get muddy and grey. Ultramarine blue does not make good clear greens, but it can make beautiful violets with a blue-red.

It is even extra difficult in pastel, as they are opaque, and therefore even more prone to make greyed down colours when blended.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/117343-3-mixed-wheel.jpg

I chose lighter values, as what greys often also darkens. A whitened blue-red, a slightly orange-yellow, and a fairly neutral whitened blue. (But white does cool, and dull.) Pinky red and yellow still make half-decent oranges, but the yellow component of the red didn't go well with the blue, so the violets are greyed. Also, the red component of the yellow didn't go well with the blue, and greyed the greens.

Life gets *much* easier with a split 'primary' palette (a cool and a warm of each 'primary', mixing them only with colours on the same side of the triangle). Below, each colour is mixed from the split primaries. Most mixes are OK, but the cobalt blue didn't make good violets with the perm rose, as both were slightly too warm and not cool enough.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/117343-6-mixed-wheel.jpg

PS, samples made on pastelmat, and these closeups show the structure of the paper, for you who are curious about it.

Here is a color wheel made with transparent watercolors -- they are Winsor & Newton. (I don't yet have some of the colors you suggested for our palette, like Transparent Yellow.) Also, not sure that the colors in jpeg show up exactly as they do on my paper, but they're similar.

Well, I've done it twice! The first time I used Inktense Blocks to try to get perfectly saturated, evenly spaced hues. But I used a lot of different ones even if I had to mix them. About half of these hues have a touch of an adjacent color to balance them to where they fit on the wheel.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/70184-4-10-2011-Class-Homework-Color-Wheel.jpg

Then when I'd taken the photo and played with it in Gimp to match the page as close as possible, I came to post and read the other half of the instructions. Mix with only three pigments! Well, I've done that too with various painting mediums - and here I thought I'd have it easy choosing a dozen pastels.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/70184-4-10-2011-Class-Homework-Color-Wheel-Primaries.jpg

Quinacridone Coral is an interesting pigment. It acts like a neutral red because it seems to have both a purplish "rose" cast and an orange cast, it'll stay bright in either direction in mixtures. That's probably why they put it in the original six watercolor sticks colors. French Ultramarine leans violet, so it's the only color that I used pure in any of the swatches - it's the cold blue pure, mixed with a little yellow to make warm blue. Hansa Yellow Medium seems to be a nearly neutral yellow, maybe a hair toward the warm side, so I warmed it and cooled it a little to split it.

Johannes, thanks for pointing out that I didn't use yellow green on the color wheel in my notes. I had a sap green in there for it but that's closer to a neutral green, so I went yellower in these wheels.

OMG Charlie, I'm a bit awed. You managed it in pastels - even with some of the hues muddied, that's amazing. I didn't even think of trying to mix primaries in pastel sticks, though your split primaries wheel is a joy. Paint is one thing, but pastels mixing is all about scumbling and blending and having a whole lot of hues and tints. Jo even said so on the "starting palette" lineup, pastels were "as many as you can afford."

etdavis, I love your Winsor & Newton palette. You got some gorgeous hues with Permanent Rose, Aureolin and Cobalt Blue, that really worked.

Jose, yours are distinct even if some look a bit muddied in the photo. I think everyone has that problem with the photography - the same things that make photos untrue in color to work from apply when photographing art.

Wow, Charlie, I am impressed. :clap: I didn't even try. And mixing on Pastelmat makes it even tougher, as that surface does not seem to lend itself well to blending - the pigment doesn't smear around much.

04-10-2011, 12:44 PM
Just for giggles, I tried it again with a palette I've used for watercolor landscapes if I want a certain mood - all three colors are Winsor & Newton. This is my Muted Triad, though I might add Indian Red to it to get some earth violets since I've seen what Johannes does with it. Paynes Grey is actually a very deep warm greenish blue rather than black, but it can work with black too because even "neutral" black usually has a blue cast and makes olive greens.

I made this wheel from the basics, (from a color course by michael wilcox UK) there are many more combinations that can be made from the basic 2 blues-- 2 reds and 2 yellows, just mix up the combinations. The arrows point to the color made from the color on either side, and naturally the desaturating grays from the compliments.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/105243-DSCN0709.JPG

I was going to try again with cobalt blue, cadmiums yellow and red instead of the ultramarine to see if I could get better blue, blue green and green but then the purple will probably suffer.
I might have a quick look through my watercolours to see if I can find suitable paints - my winsor cadmium red watercolour is very warm/scarlet/orange coloured.

Here is the cobalt blue, cad yellow and red inside the last one (rather blurred I'm afraid.)

Here is mine. Three primaries are Cad Yellow Med, Cobalt blue, and Permanent Alizarin Crimson from Blue Ridge Artist Oils. I ordinarily use a warm and cool of each primary, or at least of red and blue, but took the challenge of using only three here.

I added a very little white to the violet mixes in order to bring out the hue, as they were too dark otherwise. I was using a knife to mix and apply, I guess I could have used a brush to thin out the dark paint and use the white of the board against transparent paint, but...

Hi Johannes,

I never tried a color wheel using pastels. I've done them using watercolors, but mixing pastels is a bit different. I predominantly work in pastels, so I figured I really should give it a try. This is what I came up with:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/93075-color_wheel_1.jpg

I used these three pastels:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2011/93075-color_wheel_1_pastels.jpg

Mixing was a bit difficult. I especially found the red/blue mixing hard, as their values are the same. It was difficult to achieve colors that weren't muddy or too dark. I hope I got close. The darkest orange isn't as chalky IRL, for some reason the scan shows it a bit less intense and somewhat chalky.

Hi Sherry,

Thanks very much. I used Canson paper, a light grey color. Not sure of the exact name of the color, it was from a small pad of assorted colors. I think the trick to this is to really look at your three primaries, and make sure they are true primaries. Pastel sticks can so very easily be biased one way or the other just because of their nature (we all know mixing is an issue with them, so having all these crazy colors is what pastels is all about). It's so very easy to pick up a blue violet, or a red orange, which will definitely make the job nearly impossisble. The Art Spectrum pastels I used seemed to be pretty much pure primaries. Their names are Spectrum Red, Spectrum Blue, and Spectrum Yellow. I have an Ultramarine Blue that I think would have worked well also, but I chose to try the Spectrum Blue and it seemed to work fine. I've seen your pastels Sherry, and you definitely know how to handle them, you do beautiful work. You should give this a try, you can definitely do it!


Wow. Yours is impressive too, Chris. You and Charlie have embarrassed me - maybe I should dare to try that too. At least with my favorite hard pastels that I'm so used to blending on underlayers


Thanks very much Robert. You can do this, you're so good with pastels. This should be a piece of cake for you Robert. I was surprised at how much fun it was, I never did it with pastels, though I have done it with watercolors.

Don't gray the hues. They are supposed to be as intense as possible

The blue green needs more blue and the red violet needs more violet. In the first one the orange and red orange are leaning too much to red.

Try this one more time before I start on the homework painting. Adjusted the acrylic wheel and added an oil one. Had to add white to the blue violet and the purple to keep them from appearing black. Getting better at it I think. Usually I use a warm and a cool of each primary and lean toward a dab of pthalo for blue-greens.:eek::eek: (Something Johannes frowns on so I may have to change my wicked ways.)

My photo resizing program did some weird things to the shapes of the uploaded files.

I may try a watercolor later but want to get to the painting.

Lighten the value of your blue red and violet so the hue is clearly distinguishable.

Normally we show the hues in mid values so they are distinguishable. When you make them into a 7 or 8 will make it hard to make out.
