I’m doing a post for Mydeco about grey. I can’t believe I have been IMMERSED in grey for two weeks. Who would have thought there would be so much to learn and write about.
Some websites will tell you that grey can have undertones of green, blue or purple. Others say there are warm and cool greys -
But I believe that grey could come from ANY colour on the colour wheel, because the various versions of grey are just very unsaturated versions of colours on the colour wheel (review “saturation” here).
I created my own colour wheel to show this. (I think I can do better than this but here it is so far. Click on it to see the colours better.)
Here are yellow and violet made more and more grey. Amazing, eh?
I found a bunch of Mydeco grey products and tried to work out what KIND of grey they were. This was HARD. I must admit I used technology to help me out here (when I simpify the method I will share it with you).
First the cool greys -
Now the warm greys -
