Transcript of Copy of Copy of COLOR SCHEME:THE INTRODUCTION TO THE COLOR WHEEL

The Color Wheel
Let's find out about some pleasant color schemes...
What are some other
Combinations of COLOR?
Square and Rectangle
Color Schemes
Primary Colors
The 3 base colors that mix all the rest.
Red

BLUE

Yellow
The 12 HUES of the Color Wheel
The Color Wheel
TINTING, SHADING AND NEUTRALIZING
COLORS OPPOSITE EACH OTHER ON THE COLOR WHEEL ARE CALLED COMPLIMENTARY COLORS.
Can lack contrast
ANALOGOUS COLORS
Examples of Triadic color schemes: PRIMARY colors or SECONDARY colors.
TRIADIC COLOR SCHEME
Good for beginners!
Tough to mess up.
SPLIT-COMPLIMENTARY COLOR SCHEME

CAN BE THE SAME AS SQUARE
OFFERS PLENTY OF POSSIBILITIES FOR VARIATION.
LET ONE COLOR TO BE DOMINANT.
BALANCES WARM AND COOL COLORS
As with square, LET ONE COLOR BE DOMINANT
RECTANGLE (TETRADIC) COLOR SCHEME
THE SQUARE COLOR SCHEME IS SIMILAR TO THE RECTANGLE, BUT WITH ALL FOUR COLORS SPACED EVENLY ON THE COLOR CIRCLE.
SQUARE COLOR SCHEME WORKS BEST IF YOU LET ONE COLOR TO BE DOMINANT.
YOU SHOULD ALSO PAY ATTENTION TO THE BALANCE BETWEEN WARM AND COOL COLORS IN YOUR DESIGN.
SQUARE COLOR SCHEME
COLOR WHEEL
THE BASIC TOOL FOR ORGANIZING COLORS.
COMPLIMENTARY COLORS
SQUARE COLOR SCHEME
FOUR COLORS SPACED EVENLY AROUND THE COLOR CIRCLE.
BALANCES WARM AND COOL COLORS IN A DESIGN
WARM, COOL AND NEUTRAL
WARM AND COOL COLORS
WARM COLORS ARE VIVID AND ENERGETIC, AND TEND TO ADVANCE IN SPACE.
TINTS, SHADES AND TONES
IF A COLOR IS MADE LIGHTER BY ADDING WHITE, THE RESULT IS CALLED A 'TINT'.
IF BLACK IS ADDED TO MAKE THE COLOR DARKER, THE RESULT IS CALLED 'SHADE'.
AND IF GRAY IS ADDED THE RESULT IS A DIFFERENT 'TONE'.
COOL COLORS GIVE AN IMPRESSION OF CALM, AND RECEDE IN SPACE
.
WHITE, BLACK,

BROWN
AND
GRAY
ARE NEUTRAL.

MADE BY EITHER:
ADDING ALL COLORS
SUBTRACTING ALL COLORS
or MIXING OPPOSITE COLORS
COLORS NEXT TO EACH OTHER ON THE COLOR WHEEL. Make a HARMONIOUS color scheme
Often found in nature.
COLORS THAT ARE EVENLY SPACED AROUND THE COLOR WHEEL
.
Vibrant color scheme. Lots of variety!
VARIATION OF THE COMPLIMENTARY COLOR SCHEME. Uses a BASE COLOR plus the TWO COLORS ADJACENT to the base compliment.
Good CONTRAST like in a Complimentary Color Scheme
Less TENSION like in a Complimentary Color Scheme
What is a color wheel?
What are the major color schemes?
How are colors related?
How do colors affect art?

THE FIRST CIRCULAR COLOR DIAGRAM WAS DESIGNED BY SIR ISAAC NEWTON IN 1666.
ORGANIZES SUCCESSFUL COLOR SCHEMES
COLOR SCHEME=2 OR MORE COLORS WITH A FIXED RELATION ON THE COLOR WHEEL.
SHOWS HOW COLORS ARE RELATED
SPECTRUM OF COLORS FROM LIGHT ARRANGE THEMSELVES INTO THIS ORDER.
NEUTRAL COLORS
COMPLIMENTARY COLORS:
Are VIBRANT when used at full saturation
Can be JARRING to the eyes
Create HIGH CONTRAST
NEUTRALIZE each other when mixed together


BAD: large doses of Complimentary Colors
GOOD: small areas of high impact
TERRIBLE: for text
AWESOME: creating a muted tone or shade
Secondary Colors
Made by mixing two PRIMARY colors
Orange

Green

Violet
Intermediate Colors
Equal amounts of one PRIMARY plus one SECONDARY
Example:
Yellow-Green
,
Blue-Green,
Red-Violet
SQUARE COLOR SCHEME WORKS BEST IF YOU LET ONE COLOR BE DOMINANT.
FOUR COLORS ARRANGED INTO TWO COMPLIMENTARY PAIRS.
HUE=the SPECIFIC properties of a color
SATURATION or INTENSITY.
(How BRIGHT or DULL a color is)
will LESSEN the more you mix a color.
Highest saturation is at a colors most pure state.
MONOCHROMATIC COLORS
Using only ONE color
Tints and Shades
Different HUES within one color family.
