In playing around with color in VBA I introduced a bunch of functions to manipulate various color spaces from VBA. Digging into the whole topic a little more, I wondered if it would be possible to create color palettes from a single color. After some research, I figured that I would try the cie LabLch and HSL color spaces to see how I might do this.
The maths behind all this turned out to be pretty interesting, and I had to dust off some rusty trig concepts to get this working, but I now have a very extensive set of VBA functions to manipulate color.
