Shades of Blue Comparison Chart...

Yup, it is super nerdy but I was doing a little research for Project Spectrum and wanted to learn some factual things about the colour blue. White is the mixing of all the colours of the spectrum and definitely something I want to look into further, as well as grey, but blue is a colour I have often steered clear of, a colour I always considered unflattering on me (which it is, unless has greens in it...yummmmm, teal!) But recently I have been more drawn to it and am even knitting a navy/dark blue shrug for myself. So, thanks to the wonder of Wikipedia, here is a colour comparison chart, with exact names. I also learned that the scientific contrast colour for blue (based on the light frequencies the colours give off) is yellow, while in art it is considered orange. Now those combinations I love! Orange and a really turquoise or teal blue...aahhhhh!
