Color Names and Stuff

THIS BLOG HAS BEEN MOVED TO HTTP://ARTSTUDIOSECRETS.COM/BLOG.

A cool article about "real" colors w/r/t the EM spectrum: http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2009/02/yes-virgina-there-is-a-magenta.ars

OK, but as artist, WE know there are lots of colors and color effects that are best when they're using several points on the spectrum. What kind of color isolation tank is this woman living in anyway?

But just in case your color vocab is losing its zing, try this list for dazzling color names you can whip out at parties. Amaze your friends! http://phrontistery.info/colours.html
