The Colour Museum

With some pleasurable lazy time after the Christmas festivities, I've had a chance to browse through some of my long list of bookmarks. Artist Anna Conti posted a while ago about the The Virtual Colour Museum, which is taking some time to delve through! Even though I'm an artist, I must admit there is a lot of colour theory that I don't know. (I'm not very theoretically inclined.) I grew up with Johannes Itten's primary red-yellow-blue colour wheel (above image), as did most of us, I think. Then came exposure to other systems including Pantone and CMYK colours with printer technology. I hope you also enjoy this amazing in-depth site, including the interactive virtual colour-space by Runge.

MB, hope you find it useful as well as enjoyable. I still have to go through it some more as time permits.
