Re: Color Theory 101

btw the color chart is to guide you in making your own...don't use this one as your guide as I can assure you the colors are not the same as the original!

Re: Color Theory 101

My color wheel... I had a few of the colors, but had to substitute some as best I could... I used ultramarine since I don't have true blue and see that was a mistake. Also tried deep cobalt (swatch to the side) and that seemed a bit better.

I also can see how important it is to be neat - which this wheel isn't. Next time

Re: Color Theory 101

Arlene, may I add to your color lesson?

Intensity - the brightness or dullness of a color.

Pure color is as intense as it gets. To lessen the intensity or dull (grey) a color, one must introduce it's complement. As Arlene said, the color opposite itself on the color wheel. Intensity has nothing to do with value. A color can be greyed by adding the complement and darkened by adding black or lightened by adding white. Two completely different results.
Equal amounts of two exact opposites is a homemade grey. If either color is not an exact opposite and contains an added color, mud can result rather than grey. Mud is the color that has no name or vibrance, it just looks over-mixed. Easy to do in paint. Can be done in cp if you are fishing for the right color.

Brown (not on the color wheel) is a shade of orange. Orange + Black = Brown. Brown can be a complement of Blue just as orange is.

Pure complements used side by side can create visual tension.
Great for impact pieces.

Just my 2 cents worth,
Jeffrey

Re: Color Theory 101

Jeffrey when I did this yesterday I knew I was missing a few of the pieces, so I'm glad you piped up. Feel free to add more if you like and thanks!

Re: Color Theory 101

Ok next is the value scales. Notice I did one in black/white and another in a color? your turn!

Only, unlike me, who did it on the computer, you are to do it with colored pencils.

You may use white and black only for the first one and white, black and a color of your choice for the second one. (let's see some that aren't red please.)

Re: Color Theory 101

on your color wheel genine, please point out your primary colors and tell me which colors you used, your secondary and your tertiary. I ask because both look wrong but it could be the monitors.

To help a bit let's think...what are the three primary colors?

someone?

and the three secondary colors?

how about the 6 tertiary colors?

Re: Color Theory 101

Primary....red, yellow , blue Secondary you mix red with yellow and get orange.....red with blue you get purple......blue with yellow you get green. The the tertairy is a color what you get is you mix a secondary color with a primary color like mixing purple and blue you can get violet blue. Been reading up.

Re: Color Theory 101

Rut row...hopin it's just the scan Arlene. I should mention I used all the same colors as the example except for aquamarine...don't have that one. Used the clear acetate while scanning to help enhance the scan. If that's not it, it's just wrong.

Here it is again. Let me know. Thanks!
