weekly photo challenge: family

colour families

“FAM”ILY, n. [L. familia.]  1. The collective body of persons who live in one house and under one head or manager…”

exchange “colours” for “persons” and you have families of colours

these are some of my yummy families !

A large paint company in the U.S. has organized their families of colours into reds, oranges, warm neutrals, whites, yellows, greens, blues, violets, and cool neutrals.

There’s always the famous colour wheel, but did you know there are many colour wheels?  Starting from about the 16th century, going right up to current HTML colour “keywords” (names).  Check out this Wikipedia article.
