Objective: Getting a better understanding of Colors by memorizing hexadecimal code+corresponding colors. Once color chart is memorized, I hope to put a name to a face when it comes to the colors I see everyday, hopefully I will develop a knack for guessing a code close to what a color is.
Background: I’ve never been artsy and was never too visually creative before the memory world, so I’m lacking in the color department. Basically me
I might try to make a new chart sorting by the intensity of the color. I would do this visually, and in broad categories like Red, Green, Blue. I’m sure someone very math minded or good at coding could make some formula which would sort these by intensity but i’m not on that level. I haven’t started sorting yet so if someone has suggestions, i’m open to them.
I got the idea to do this messing around with the color wheel on https://www.canva.com/brand looking at the brand kit.
Why: I think being able to better distinguish colors will give a generally better understanding of the world. I would imagine that discerning between different plants and animals becomes easier when you have more specific colors to describe them.
I also find the way This page breaks down pictures by color quite a beautiful process.
