• Thank you for a most informative essay…I will definitely try the circle with the hole in the middle. Oftentimes my head takes over from my senses, I feel sure this will help.

      Thanks Jane. Yes, we live in our heads and work out of our heads. This is a problem.Think: sensuous human activity.

      Larry, Not sure this is a tip, but I would say don’t try so hard to see color; just relax and look for color. Then try and mix that exact color and keep looking. If you
      don’t see any more color, don’t worry about it. Over time you will gradually see more and more. Remember these colors – the variety of color in a shadow for example,
      is very subtle – somewhat akin to seeing the subtle colors in a diamond. You can exaggerate the color if you wish but it isn’t necessary. Good art is in the
      subtlety. The trick, if there is one, is simply to be open to color (or line, or tonality) and do not see the object before you. Don’t worry, you’ll get it little by
      little. It’s like everything else. It takes time but from the get go you can enjoy your vision.

      I try not to exaggerate but to relate. On the other hand Van Gogh and Matisse say they “exaggerated;” either way – I think learning to see and get a thrill from seeing is the key! JF
