Colour exercises – other shots

I thought I would include these shots as a separate entry, as they represent my initial work on the exercises and, to a degree, the assignment.   While I think they fulfil the function of meeting the brief of the exercises, I found that they were not making me very involved with them as they were as a result of me taking several trips around the village as seen with no clear relationship between the shots.  I guess as I thought they were just photos and there was no personal point of reference I felt that they were just a little bit too constructed and impersonal for what I wanted to do.

Nevertheless I thought it might be interesting to show some of them as they do illustrate the range of colours available:-

It seemed to me that the two most common relationships were red/yellow and green/red.  Of all the colours on the circle violet was the hardest to locate, as can be seen from the above selection.  Interestingly violet was, with one exception, really only available as a natural colour in plants.  Its not used in signage as much as the other five it seems to me.  I guess it is, as is demonstrated by the ratios previously described, not a bright (and therefore eye-catching) colour.
