With Color Schemes
Artists bend the color spectrum into a circle which organizes the colors
Colors are arranged on the color wheel by how they are mixed together
When the spectrum is organized as a color wheel, the colors are divided into groups called primary, secondary and intermediate colors.
Primary colors are the colors yellow, red and blue
These colors can not be made by mixing other colors…..however,
it is possible to mix all the other colors of the spectrum using the primary colors.
Any three colors spaced at an equal distance on the color wheel such as the primary colors, or the secondary colors.

What do you think of when you see these colors:
The Old Guitarist, 1903
Oil on panel, 48”x32 1/2”
The Art Institute of Chicago
Critique this painting by Picasso.
Look closely at the color and values used
Think about why he used only the color blue
Would Picasso’s Man with Guitar look as sad if he chose a different color?
