Okay all you artsy types. Go take the Hue Test and see how you score. Hues have always been hard for me. In fact the words "hue", "tone", "shade" etc. always make me want to tear my hair out because I know I'm gonna screw up and use the wrong term and show what a loser wannabe I am. And I'm always coming home from the store with what I think is just the right green paint or blue fabric only to find that it's got completely too yellow in it or it's much darker than I thought in the store.
But surprise, surprise, I scored pretty well on this test. I got an 11. Although, hmmmm, maybe not so much of a surprise. I can't get the terminology straight, but I am sort of the unofficial fabric coordinator for people who are wandering around the quilt or paint store with a swatch and a confused look on their face. I can usually find something they love that they passed right by without even considering. I think a lot of it is a matter of practice. The more you work with color, the more you notice the fine differences.
So, how'd you do?
