I've been updating one of the sites I created at the time today and came across a new site which I found fascinating and thought you might do
This is a test to see how color interacts with other colours. Click the link and tweak the arrows and try and match the inner squares so that they are the same hue and value - and then tick the box in the middle to see how you did.
Now I'd just like to point out that I have no problems seeing this in Chrome but it won't perform in Firefox for some reason - but the image you should be seeing should look something like this.

The three websites I created as a result of the colour project are detailed below. I keep forgetting that as readership of this blog increases, there's lots in the archives that people are not aware of.
The websites are followed by links to the three summaries about colour I created which are available to download for free from http://www.makingamark.co.uk/color.html - and those are listed at the end
