I *think* this is where I should ask... but am not sure, sorry if it's the wrong section...
This is kind of embarrassing but I can't be the first person to think this. So I kind of have a problem with "mentally picking out colours from surfaces I paint" etc. I know that the key to fixing this is practice but I'm actually not sure where to start (it feels like I need a simpler exercise as opposed to just painting everything, to develop a slight understanding before obtaining a bigger one).
I was talking to someone before about how I can't depict each individual millimeter on a gradient colour wheel like they can, eventually the conversation spanned to the possibility of me being slightly colourblind (extremely slightly, which's apparently not uncommon), but colourblind enough to throw off my judgment when picking a colour from life to paint with.
Again the key is obviously practice, and I intend to do a butt-load of it, but my eyesight is somewhat impared (short sighted, sometimes little fuzzy as if I'm dehydrated, but that's fixable ;P), and I'm just wondering what exercises you guys know for me and other people with this same problem to "get started with" to develop our mental colour picking a little before tackling harder tasks.
Thank you very much in advance, I really appreciate any help you can give.
