    Sorry I should have asked you this question when you gave us the homework but I’m not sure what you mean by ‘related grays or ‘composition studies’
    Many thanks for your help with this

      Hi Colette

      Step 2 of the project mentions “Related Grey (Complimentary colours mixed together in different quantities)”. So a ‘related grey’ colour is any colour that results from a mix of 2 complimentary colours, for example a red+green or yellow+purple. When colours are mixed in this way they usually result in some beautiful subtle colours with a distinctive grey feel about them.

      The “composition studies” are the little colour studies you started making in class.

      I hope this helps. I look forward to seeing the results of whatever extra work you have managed to complete at home. See you tomorrow evening.
