Even though I work in fiber, I always take advantage of learning about color regardless of medium. I took Joan's Craftsy course and now Lisa'a about using pencils. I can never learn enough about color! Now I'm working on my grid!

Oh, Im glad to know that its good idea to study colors in any mediums. For example, one instructor will teach color class at QBL for a week workshop. I was not sure if its worth taking it but now I read your post and think about its worth to take such classes like color painting or color pencil classes to help. One thing I face problem is it is a lengthy time to hunt right shade or hue or saturation of one color that my quilts need to have. I had to spend money on about 7 different colors for same color family. It is only way it works for me by buy the 4 to 9 inches length fabrics to bring home first before decide which one to go back to buy right shade or saturatione etc. How do u manage that for your quilt's right color choices that I may learn something different way instead of buying several small pieces for one color family.

Fingerlakesgal, choosing fabric for a quilt is always a challenge. Some people use a software program so they canary out different color schemes before buying the fabric. But, you can do the same with water color, acrylic or pencil (and, in my mind, it's more fun!) Then you can take your drawing to the store and purchase just the right fabrics off the bat!
