Transcript of Basic Color Theory

Basic Color Theory
Primary Colors
Primary Colors
:
red
,
yellow
and
blue

Primary
colors are 3 colors that
cannot
be created by any other
colors. All other colors are derived from these 3
hues
.
Secondary Colors
Secondary Colors
:
green
,
orange
and
violet

Secondary
colors are created by mixing two
Primary colors
together.

Red
and
blue
combined equally make
violet
.
Blue
and
yellow
combined equally make
green
.
Red
and
yellow
combined equally make
orange
.
Tertiary or Intermediate Colors
Tertiary colors
: yellow-orange, red-orange,
red-violet, blue-violet, blue-green, and yellow-green.

Tertiary
colors are created by mixing a
Primary
and a
Secondary
color or by mixing two
Primary
colors and adding more of one
Primary
than the other.

For example: Red-orange can be created by mixing
red

and
orange
equally, or by mixing
red
and
yellow
and adding more
red
than
yellow
.
Tints, Shades, and Tones
A
Tint
is simply any color with white added to it. By adding white to a color, the color will get lighter. A tint is sometimes called a pastel. For example: if you add white to
red
,
you will create

pink
.

A
Shade
is simply any color with black added to it. By adding black to a color, the color will get darker. For example: if you add
black
to
blue
, you will create

Navy blue
.

A
Tone
is created by adding both white and black to a color. White and black together will create
gray
;
a tone is a grayed version of the color. White, black and gray are
neutrals
.
Warm and Cool Colors
The color wheel can be divided into
warm
and
cool
colors.

Warm
colors are vivid and energetic. Warm colors tend to advance in space.

Cool
colors give an impression of being calm and soothing. Cool colors tend to recede in space.
The Color wheel
The traditional color circle based on the primary colors of red, yellow and blue in the field
of art dates back to
Sir Isaac Newton
who had developed
the first circular
diagram of colors
in 1666.
