Next Albers’ Exercise: Making two colors look like one. Use Color Aid Paper. In this case the yellow subtracts the red to orange and the maroon is assimilated into the orange, create equal appearing colors.One side is subtractive, one side shows assimilation.
What color relations seem to best create this effect? Begin by choosing the two colors that will look alike, they should be similar but differeing in the amount of one color. The blue-green tint at left has more blue than the one at the right which has more yellow and less blue.
The pinkish-violet color on the left has more red-violet than the mauve color to the right which has more blue. Therefore the left must go on a bluer background and the right on a more pinkish-violet. Find two colors that differ by slight amounts of two other colors and try out different backgrounds. When you have a match, then get creative. These are high school students, so I want you to up the ante with your cut-outs.
