IVP4406: Methods & Material (8) - Yurmby Colour Wheel

This is the colour wheel that i am familiar with and has been teaching my kids about it
and i din know that it has a super low key relative known as Yurmby until David introduced it in class 

went online wanting to find out more about it but was surprise that there isn't much simplified info ..there wasn't even a wiki explanation of what it is... hmmmm!!!... 


Your color wheel must either represent the ideal world of optical color or the physical world of paints, but no single wheel can accurately represent both color universes.
-James Gurney


so from the few skimpy blogs about the yurmby that i chanced upon, the quote from david's PPT and my limited art brain, i think it has got to do with colour harmony and how we really see colours given the modern day's pigment and technology.... the more famous colour wheel is based on pigment and paint while the not so famous one is based on light and optical colours.... 

anyway, luv the activity for the day.... paint our own yurmby colour wheel... =) ... no need creativity, no need skill, no need to squint to see the light nor the dark..... just my kind of art.... oopx

David's version with 7 layers.... he was kind enough to let us do 4 layers only... =) 

and even provided a super duper tool which acted like a compass for the drawing of the circles

Demonstration on how to get the different tones/shades of a hue by adding different grey tones to it

used oil paint for  this activity 
Note: blue --> royal blue, cyan --> ultramarine blue

and since it's oil paint, it doesn't make sense at all to use water and hence linseed oil was use

 Thanks to our very talented and organised Ana who provided a great help in mixing all the colours, i managed to finish painting my very own Yurmby wheel within the lesson... =) 

the grey scale which were used to achieve the different tones/shades

Nice, neat, clean, perfect piece of "art".... i like... =)
