  • 17. The Color Wheel
  • 18. Primary Colors
    • Red, yellow and blue
    • In traditional color theory, these are the 3 pigment colors that can not be mixed or formed by any combination of other colors. All other colors are derived from these 3 hues
  • 19. SECONDARY COLORS
    • Green, orange and purple
    • These are the colors formed by mixing the primary colors.
  • 20. TERTIARY COLORS
    • Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green and yellow-green.
    • These are the colors formed by mixing a primary and a secondary color. That's why the hue is a two word name, such as blue-green, red-violet, and yellow-orange. 
  • 21. Analogous color scheme
    • Analogous colors are colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Some examples are green, yellow green, orange and yellow.
    • The combination of these colors give a bright and cheery effect in the area, and are able to accommodate many changing moods.
    • When using the analogous color scheme, one should make sure there is one hue as the main color.
  • 22. Monochromatic color scheme
    • The monochromatic color scheme uses variations in lightness and saturation of a single color.
    • This scheme looks clean and elegant.
    • Monochromatic colors go well together, producing a soothing effect.
    • The monochromatic scheme is easy to manage, and always looks balanced and visually appealing.
    • This scheme lacks color contrast. It is not as vibrant as the complementary scheme.
  • 23. Complementary color scheme
    • Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel, such as blue and orange, red and green, purple and yellow.
    • Complementary color schemes have a more energetic feel
    • The high contrast between the colors creates a vibrant look, especially when used at full saturation.
    • The complementary color scheme offers stronger contrast than any other color scheme, and draws maximum attention.
    • This scheme is harder to balance than monochromatic and analogous schemes, especially when desaturated warm colors are used.
  • 24. Triadic color scheme
    • The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel.
    • This scheme is popular among artists because it offers strong visual contrast while retaining balance, and color richness.
  • 25. Neutral color scheme
    • A color scheme that includes only colors not found on the color wheel, called neutrals, such as beige, brown, white, black, and gray
  • 26. Warm and cool colors . Warm colors are vivid and energetic, and tend to advance in space. Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression. White, black and gray are considered to be neutral.
  • 27.
    • Tints - adding white to a pure hue
    • Tones - adding gray to a pure hue
    • Shades - adding black to a pure hue
    Tints, Shades, and Tones
  • 28. COLOR HARMONY
    • Harmony can be defined as a pleasing arrangement of parts
    • It engages the viewer and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the visual experience.
    • When something is not harmonious, it's either boring or chaotic.
    • The human brain will reject under-stimulating information.
    • At the other extreme is a visual experience that is so overdone, so chaotic that the viewer can't stand to look at it.
    • The human brain rejects what it can not organize, what it can not understand.
    • The visual task requires that we present a logical structure.

  • 31.
    • Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange. Usually one of the three colors predominates.

  • 32. A color scheme based on complementary colors
    • Complementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other, such as red and green and red-purple and yellow-green.
  • 33. A color scheme based on nature
    • Nature provides a perfect departure point for color harmony.
  • 34. Color Context
