Those courses that I am doing are throwing up some interesting things.
I entered into "The Power of Colour" thinking it would just be a refresher course but lots of interesting things are surfacing.
I don't remember the colour theory as well as I thought I did. Time to switch my brain on again. I even got one of the answers wrong in the test.
The science side of how we see colour is really interesting. I'm not a great user of twitter so I missed this discussion about just what was the colour of the dress.
In the material on the course I saw it as blue and black but the lecturer saw it as white and gold. The science behind this is really interesting and women see colour better than men. No surprises there.
I have also found some great books. I can find them for sale in the online shops but not in the Council Libraries. Next stop is to see if they are in the University Library. Written by Michel Pastoureau and the most notable is "Black: the History of a Colour". This book looks at the 'Social History of colour and is great if you are interested in fashion, art, media or design. There are a number of books in the series and if I am not able to get them at the library I am going to become very poor!
It's good when something exceeds your expectations.
