COLOR


Color

Color

is the product of light. Without light you have no color.

The color wheel is divided up into primary (red, yellow, blue), secondary (orange, green, violet), and tertiary(red-orange, yellow-orange yellow-green, blue green, blue-violet, red-violet) colors.


Color1

Color

There are 3 primary colors:

Red, Yellow and Blue

These colors are primary for 2 reasons:

  • No other colors make them

  • They make all the other colors on the color wheel


Color2

Color

When you mix 2 primary colors together, you get a secondary color.

For example:

Red + Blue = Violet


Color3

Color

When you mix a primary and a secondary color you get an tertiary (or intermediate) color.

For example:

Red and Orange= Red-Orange

Yellow and Green=Yellow-Green


Color schemes

Color Schemes

Color is divided into groups based on the way they are placed on the color wheel:

3 - 4 colors next to each other create an analogous color scheme


Color schemes1

Color schemes

2 colors that are directly opposite each other (going across the center) creates a complimentary color scheme


Color schemes2

Color Schemes

When you use only one color plus its tints and shades, you are using a monochromatic color scheme

A tint is a color plus white

A shade is a color plus black


Color temperatures

Color Temperatures

Warm colors are those that have Reds, Yellows and Oranges. Warm colors seem to advance (or come forward) in an artwork.

Cool colors are those that have Blues, Greens and Violets. Cool colors seem to recede (or go back into) an artwork.
