The c o l o r wheel helps to organize the colors in the spectrum l.jpg

TheCOLOR wheel helps to organize the colors in the spectrum.

  • Not all colors may be found on the color wheel (ex. black, gray, white, browns, {neutrals} and other specialty colors; ex. neons and metallics).


Colors are organized into 4 major groups l.jpg

Colors are organized into 4 major groups:

  • 1. Primary Colors

  • 2. Secondary Colors

  • 3. Intermediate Colors

  • 4. Neutral Colors


1 primary colors l.jpg

1. Primary Colors

  • Primary colors cannot be produced by mixing other colors together. They can only be made from nature or from chemicals.

  • Primary colors make all the other colors.

  • The primary colors are

    RED, BLUE, and YELLOW


2 secondary colors l.jpg

2. Secondary Colors

  • Secondary colors are produced by mixing primary colors

  • Primary color+primary color=secondary Color

  • + Violet

  • + Orange

  • + Green


3 intermediate colors l.jpg

3. Intermediate Colors

  • Intermediate (in-between) colors are produced by mixing a primary and secondary color that are side-by-side on the color wheel

  • Primary color+Secondary color=Intermediate Color

  • blue-green, blue-violet,

  • red-violet, red-orange

  • yellow-orange, yellow-green


4 neutrals l.jpg

4. Neutrals

white,

black,

gray, {values}

and browns

COLORSCHEMES


Slide8 l.jpg

  • Monochromatic

  • Analogous

  • Complementary

    Split complement

    Triadic


Slide9 l.jpg

  • Monochromatic Color Scheme

    • Mono = one, single,. . . as in monorail

    • Chroma = color

    • thus monochromatic = One color.

  • This color scheme can be achieved by using tints and shades of one hue.


Color schemes analogous l.jpg

Color schemes Analogous

  • Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. Colors with a family resemblance.

  • Analogous colors will have some of the same primary color; ex. yellow, yellow-orange, and orange, or blue, blue-green, and green etc.

  • Analogous will always mix well.


Color schemes complementary l.jpg

Color schemes Complementary

  • Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel; ex. red and green, violet and yellow, yellow-green and red-violet etc.

  • If mixed together in near equal amounts, complements make a neutral color.

  • If a little of a hue’s complement is mixed in with it, the result will be a dulling or neutralizing of that hues intensity.


Split complement l.jpg

Split complement:

  • Three colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel, but to either side of the exact opposite (complement); ex. red, blue-green, and yellow-green


Triadic l.jpg

Triadic:

  • Colors that are equally spaced. The most famous of these is the primary triad . . . red, yellow, and blue.

  • Triadic harmonies are most effective if only one color is allowed to dominate.


Assignment l.jpg

Assignment
