ColorIsRelative.com launched

Color is Relative is a website dedicated to showing luminosity achieved through simple color combinations. On the site, the image at left is interactive. By moving the mouse over a single swatch the background color of the page will change to the same color. The effect is intended to show the impact of changing the context of color.

In the next month, I will be releasing my next series of paintings that will be based on the color theory I have learned from Dick Nelson.

You can also visit my color page on facebook. Seeing Things, Color is Relative.

The grid seems to change color as you move the mouse over each swatch. Take your time.

This is the alpha version, please let me know your reaction and make comments.

If you want to select a color that is in the middle of the matrix, but you don't want to see the mouse icon covering your swatch, do this. Move your mouse over the swatch you want to be the background, then quickly swoop your mouse away from the center. The original swatch most always remains selected and determins the background.

This is useful so you can see every oustide edge distinctly from the background.

Wow, it's fascinating how the center swatches don't seem to match the background because of the other colors around them...
