What is Your Color IQ?

I’ve had many people ask me about my artwork, “How did you know to put that color there? I can’t even see that color in the reference photo?”

I’ve always had a knack with color. It’s one of the few things I truly feel I do well. I can look at a color and be able to match it without holding the two colors next to each other. Color has also always been one of those things that fascinates me: the psychology of color, color trends, color mixing, etc. I should have gone to work for Pantone and never looked back.  Many men, but not many women have various forms of color blindness, while others have very strong color vision and color acuity. Check out this test I found that you can do to determine your level of color IQ: http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?pageid=77&lang=en

I find this so interesting and I hope you will too. I scored a zero – which indicates I have perfect color vision (at least until cataracts set in at some point). What’s your color score?

  1. Very interesting and very difficult. The colors seemed to change as I got closer or further away from the computer. By the time I was finished my eyes were killing me! Scored a 22 which was 80% so I guess I should be happy, but wish I had done better.
