"No Personal Space" --- SOLD
Purple and green, a combination I used to marvel over and wonder why they weren't compliments. But they are, at least according to the Munsell Wheel. My understanding of how Mr. Munsell created his wheel was thus: he stared at a color for a little while then looked abruptly at white, and whatever color he saw he put down as that color's compliment. He created his entire wheel that way and came up with something similar to the traditional wheel, but not quite the same. I first read about it in a book by Harley Brown. His first book, "Eternal Truth's for Every Artist", I highly recommend. It is no longer in print but a student of mine got in touch with me today to say she'd found it in her local library. Apparently he put out another book recently. Has anyone read it?
