The color wheel l.jpg

The Color Wheel

Primary colors l.jpg

Primary Colors

  • Red, yellow, and blue

  • In traditional color theory, these are the three pigment colors that can not be mixed or formed by any combination of other colors

  • All other colors are derived from these three hues

Secondary colors l.jpg

Secondary Colors

  • These are the three colors formed by mixing two primary colors together - green, orange, and violet

  • Blue + yellow = green

  • Red + yellow = orange

  • Red + blue = violet

Tertiary colors l.jpg

Tertiary Colors

  • These are the six colors formed by mixing a primary color with a secondary color - yellow-orange, red-orange, red-violet, blue-violet, blue-green, and yellow-green

  • The question:Now that we have 12 colors...where do the rest of the colors come from?

  • The answer:Variations in tint, shade, and neutral

  • Shade - hue mixed with black

  • Tint - hue mixed with white

How to create a neutral color l.jpg

How to create a neutral color

  • Neutral –

    • hue + gray or

    • hue + complementary color





Three properties of color l.jpg

Three Properties of Color

  • Hue is the basic name of a color or the pure form of color

    • – there are six basic hues: red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and violet

  • Intensity or saturation -relative brightness or dullness of the color

    • – a color is at full intensity only when pure and unmixed

  • Value is the lightness or darkness of a hue

Basic color schemes l.jpg

Basic Color Schemes

  • Color schemes are ways to use groups of colors together so a desired affect is achieved by an artist

Complementary colors l.jpg

Complementary Colors

  • Complementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other on the color wheel, such as red and green and red-purple and yellow-green

  • they heighten and accent one another

  • Extremely eye-catching and vibrant

Analogous colors l.jpg

Analogous Colors

  • Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange

  • The similarity of colors makes the schemes harmonious, soothing and restful

Monochromatic scheme l.jpg

Monochromatic Scheme

  • Tints and shades of a single pure hue

  • Extremely unified and harmonious - effective for establishing an overall mood

  • Can be dull because of the lack of variation

Color context l.jpg

Color Context

  • Compare the contrast effects of different color backgrounds for the same red square

  • Red appears more brilliant against a black background and somewhat duller against the white background

  • In contrast with orange, the red appears lifeless; in contrast with blue-green, it exhibits brilliance

  • Notice that the red square appears larger on black than on other background colors

Slide17 l.jpg

  • Different readings of the same color

Slide18 l.jpg

  • If your computer has sufficient color stability and gamma correction (link to Color Blind Computers) you will see that the small purple rectangle on the left appears to have a red-purple tinge when compared to the small purple rectangle on the right

  • They are both the same color as seen in the illustration above

  • This demonstrates how three colors can be perceived as four colors
