This sun represents a colour chart,warm and cool colours. As in the picture think of the warms as being the closest so there for the ‘hottest’ colours and the cool colours having cooled off as they move further away from the heat..
Colours have a direct impact on ones mood. This warm colour scheme creates a ‘warm’ homely feel.
Colours have have both positive and negative attributes. With these warm colours it can create feelings anywhere from happiness to violence.I almost feel as though there is negativity engulfing the town as the clouds approach. Personal opinion..
We associate colour to feelings, in this case love.
Although there are more cool than warm colours here, we still see them contrasting well with each other. Lovely relaxing feeling to this painting.
Here the warms and cools are clashing. It makes me uneasy and i cant look at it for to long without becoming annoyed. They should of stuck to one colour code.
Here we have cool colours, anything from violet to green.
Cool colours are said to have a calming and relaxing effect.
This artist has used cool hues of blue, using lighter for highlighting and darker for shadows.
Just a random painting I found. I find it very upsetting, almost separating good from evil, evil being the red warm tones that we associate ‘hell 'with. Cool tones heaven.
Interior design colour schemes are chosen tocreate a calming environment..
Colour tones is how light or dark a colour rather than what the actual colour or hue is. It’s the use of the same colour in different shades.
Black and white tones are used very cleverly here to create a ‘multi-visual’ picture.
Dark tones in this picture take what is meant to be a happy Disney character and make it feel dark and gloomy.
Lighter hues of colour produce smaller ranges of tone. Here the sky (horizon) and the ground are of the same tones. Shading and highlighting is used. See the cloud with what looks like the sun behind it. Lighter shades are used for this. And the cut-off for the horizon, darker tones.
Tones are used to make paintings look more realistic and 3D.
Tones are also used to create a focal point. The eye focuses on the light element against the dark. See the lady in white.
Once again tone used to create a realistic feeling. One can imagine how flat and life-less it would look in one tone of colour.
‘en grisaille’done purely in gray tones. Different tones (light and dark) creating different levels and layers. Although it’s all one tone, there’s no feeing of incomplete. It works.
