As I started to fill my tray with potential colors for the painting I decided to consult my Analogous Color Wheel to help me choose the underpainting colors. The color wheel suggested Blue Violet as the compliment of my dominant hues. Ahhhh perfect. I love blue violet and I might not have thought to use it for the underpainting!

The analogous color wheel also helped me choose some of my spice colors. I especially love the suggested discord of red violet...so I used some hot pink! Choosing my colors in advance with the help of the color wheel allowed me to paint quickly and more intuitively. It was so much fun to share the creation of this painting with my class.
