Transcript of monochromatic color

Monochromatic Color Scheme
Only ONE color...or all the shades of that one color
Mono= One
Chromatic= color
When you choose one color, you can use all the shades of that one color, from darkest to lightest.
Artists use monochromatic color schemes to create a mood or tell us something about their work.
Claude Monet, "Venice" 1908
Sandy Skoglund, "Fox Games"
Artists sometimes will go through phases where they only use one type of color for every painting....Like Pablo Picasso did during his "Blue Period".
Neutral colors add depth and variety to monochromatic color schemes.
Georgia O'Keefe used monochromatic color schemes to fill the entire canvas and make us understand a flower from a bug's point of view.
Picasso blue period was influenced by the suicide of his friend Carlos Casagemas
