Spontaneous moments in teaching . . .
I stand against automatically using a white sheet of paper — change to toned paper as a background. I hand down the ancient wisdom of the grisaille layer, then pull out my stash of CMY color wheels.
I spin around. “I am the white light of the sun. I contain all the colors perceived by your human eyes. I contain more colors conceived by non-human eyes, by x-ray machines, by radios – I contain frequencies! I have been examined by artists and scientists through the ages and systems have emerged throughout art history and the experimentations of science to help you make a living! Study the relationships between my wave-lengthy aspects. Learn the color relationships condensed onto this wheel and thrive!”
