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.
