          OMGoodness–every page I looked at with a photo in both a travel and a fashion magazine had elements of the components of Graphics and Colour that you’ve described! How did I not realize all that before? Thanks for having such a straightforward way to organize those design components!

            I am watching this episode at home with my limited and slow data. Usually I have to go to the library or somewhere with good wifi. I am getting a disconnect between the video and audio (one lags behind the other). Is this what everyone sees?

                    Ditto. I’m having the same issue.

                        Hi Margarite, Have you tried to reduce the quality of the video and see if it fixes the issue? Let us know if you’re still having problems after trying that.
                        Cheers

                    Thank you!
                    Colors have always been difficult for me to choose in what I wear, knit or decorate my home with. This was so very helpful. I can’t help but think that Pictures of Birds could provide a great source for color inspiration. I think I may try to create boards for graphics and colors using Pinterest to start.

                      Colour for me has always been emotional and I mostly like colours from nature. A few years ago I took over a large room in my house for my weaving and spinning. The walls were, at that time, painted that typical eggshell, so, of course, I wanted to change that. I had always thought that I disliked pink, but had noticed that at a certain time in the day, the light through the window gave the room a rosy glow. I tried out paint chips and painted samples until I got something that replicated that rosy glow because it made me feel happy and contented. Now every time I go to weave, the room itself feels welcoming and peaceful.

                          You’ve showed me how to look at pictures in a whole new way. I’ve always been attracted to color, but now I find myself saying phrases like, “Division of space in threes” and “There’s the zinger”! What an exciting mindset transformation.

                            I can’t wait to use these principles! I have always been fascinated with color, but never had any formal education on the color wheel; since my daughter gifted me one for Christmas a couple years ago, I have been able to gradually “see” color and why some combinations work and others don’t as well. I love the idea of clipping photos and using them in a totally “new” way. This all gets my heart beating and mind working overtime just soaking it in. Thank you!

                              It is bad enough that every fabric I see, i see a pattern.  Now i am finished.  I will have to walk around with my eyes closed.  Went into the fruit dept. at my grocery store…OMGoodness, I had never noticed all the degrees of color.  It is your fault Jane.😅😅😅😅😅
