How We See Color

I think the thing the draws me to quilting more than anything is the aspect of playing with color.  Of course, if I could paint, I probably would be doing that, but since I can barely draw stick figures I love playing around with fabric.  I have my favorites (I'm attracted to the cool spectrum) but I love and appreciate all colors at various times.  Sometimes I get involved with a color and it becomes my life for a while and then I suddenly drop it as if it completed its job and I am suddenly cured.  Once I've been healed by a color I move on but always with a greater appreciation for that color than I previously had.  I do think that there are healing powers in color.  And I know that I hunger for color.  I think those of you that have the same sort of hunger do understand.  It's like the way some people feel about music, for example.  It sends me on an absolute high at times.  Anyway, this morning I came across this test here.  It's a hue test and is quite interesting.  Try it and tell me how you did.  Also, I will be doing the draw for my birthday giveaway tomorrow, so please comment here for a chance to win!

I love stuff like this! I scored 4, how about you? Have you seen Patty Youngs new line, Grand Bazaar? I love the darker fabrics from this collection.

I scored 99 and it said low color acuity. I don't think that is very good! How did you do?

Haha. I got 11. Not great, not terrible. I found it harder to do the blue/green/purple part of the spectrum. And boy did doing that test make my eyes water!
