Yellow - Cannot be made by mixing any other colors

- They are colors in their own right

Orange Complementary/contrasting Colors - Any two colors which are directly opposite from each other on the color wheel are called complementary colors

Texture Principles of Design Balance
Harmony - The concept of visual equilibrium

- Relates to our physical sense of balance

- Most successful compositions achieve balance in one of two ways:
1. Symmetrically or
2. Asymmetrically _ Elements are arranged equally on either side of a central axis

- May also be referred to as "formal balance"

- Strong emphasis on the center axis in symmetry, since all information is reflected from there Famous Symmetrical Paintings The Vitruvian Man School of Athens Demons and Angels The Last Supper Asymmetry - When elements are placed unevenly within a piece

- Involves placement of objects in a way that allow objects of varying visual weight to balance one another

- Often referred to as "informal balance" Famous Asymmetrical Paintings Starry Night Mona Lisa Tones vs. Tints
How to make Tones:
-Mix gray with raw hue, such as primary or secondary colors

How to make Tints:
-Mix white with raw hue. Shade How to make a Shade:
-Mix black with raw hue Hue - the 12 purest
and brightest colors Think about it! Light Pink = the root Color or Hue is RED

Navy = the root Color or Hue is BLUE

Rust = the root Color or Hue is ORANGE Which is a Tone, TInt or Shade? -Where the piece of art work is made up of all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue.

Ex. Picasso's Blue Period Monochromatic
Color Scheme The Color Wheel Tertiary colors -Colors made by mixing Primary and Secondary Colors - A visual representation of colors according to their chromatic relationship

- Includes a combination of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors Tertiary Colors Fun Fact: The color brown is made by mixing complementary colors

Red + Green = Brown
Blue + Orange = Brown
Yellow + Purple = Brown - This tool allows us to discover exhibitions and collections from museums all over the world
