When finished, the tapestries did  not look like the designs and  some areas of color did not  match the color of the thread that  was used to create that part of  the tapestry. Chevreul figured out that it was the proximity of one color to another that caused the eye to  see  a color that differed from the  color of the thread with which it was

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
