Dora Hagge Color Wheel
It has a center disc that turns to idendify colors that vibrate in response to one another.
Designed for painters by a painter, this color wheel
helps artists achieve those glowing, vibrating color
effects that treat the eye. This is a small working
wheel that fits in your hand, 4 1/4" x 5 3/4". The
center disc identifies vibrating colors. It was designed
to help my workshop classes "see" color relationships and
think thru why one color is a better choice than another.
You learn to paint things the color you need instead of the color
they are. Instructions are printed on the back of the wheel. They
are explained step-by-step in more detail on a page that comes with the
wheel. Color relationships are clearly shown. You learn to make a simple
Color Key before you paint. When you see your colors respond and sing - you know
your work has the same potential. It becomes easy to build a color scheme for a painting.
Color plays on our emotions like music.
When you paint you create music for the eye.

"I have had the Dora Hagge Color Wheel for years. While teaching art, I have found that it is color that gives students the most difficulty. I have seen students "get it" from this color wheel and the good explanations that accompany it.
The small size is a painters delight. I especially appreciate the directional lines to simplify and easily show colors that work together. It's the best!"
