Final directions for Color Wheels Three and Four are updated.  Now its time to start using the color wheels in daily painting to help keep your colors clean and your values within the right range.

Complete Color Wheel Four

Whew…… Color Wheels Three and Four are complete.  I have updated the pages with the final instructions:

Directions for creating Color Wheel Three – based on Seven Step Grayscale
.

Directions for creating Color Wheel Four – based on Nine Step Grayscale
.

In my own experiments, I plan to paint at least a dozen little studies without neutralizing the colors to make sure I am paying attention to Value rather than trying to imitate reality.  By that time I will be craving neutrals, but I hope that I will retain what I have learned about establishing correct values with my higher intensity colors.  I believe that this exercise will result in cleaner neutrals that will enhance the higher intensity colors.
