Ken Riley on Color

"We all possess both intuitive and educated color senses. These work together to create a personal use and response to color composition. The play of one color against another can also carry the eye throughout the composition and thereby create movement."

I find color theory absolutely fascinating but... I am stank horrible at it really. So I find this idea that I have an intuitive one and a learned one absolutely startling. Everything I do is bright, bright like candy except when it's not. There is no real method to my madness. No choices. I just start out and do what feels right, what looks good. And that's why my stuff looks like crap I guess.
