Dreaming About…

Dreaming about the color wheel?

Hopefully something no artist ever really does. Dream about color itself, perhaps – but the color wheel? Not a chance.

And this is the reason I am perplexed that so many art teachers spend weeks and weeks and weeks grinding the color wheel into their student’s heads, kids laboring all the while under the delusion that painting mixed hues into a circular format is somehow of greater importance than putting those colors to use to tell a story, or to communicate an emotion.
