  • The eye contains two kinds of receptors: rods and cones. While the rods convey shades of gray, the cones allow the brain to perceive color hues. Of the three types of cones, the first is sensitive to red-orange light, the second to green light and the third to blue-violet light. When a single cone is stimulated, the brain perceives the corresponding color. That is, if our green cones are stimulated, we see "green". Or if our red-orange cones are stimulated, we see "red". If both our green and red-orange cones are simultaneously stimulated, our perception is yellow.The eye cannot differentiate between spectral yellow, and some combination of red and green. The same effect accounts for our perception of cyan, magenta, and the other in-between spectral colors.Because of this physiological response, the eye can be "fooled" into seeing the full range of visible colors through the proportionate adjustment of just three colors: red, green and blue

    1. 1. OUGD404 DESIGN PRINCIPLESCOLOUR – Part 3 colour & contrast
    2. 2. Because of this physiological response, the eye can be "fooled"into seeing the full range of visible colors through the proportionateadjustment of just three colors: red, green and blue.
    3. 3. Itten’s 7 Contrasts • Contrast of TONE • Contrast of HUE • Contrast of SATURATION • Contrast of EXSTENSION • Contrast of TEMPERATURE • COMPLEMENTARY contrast • SIMULTANEOUS contrast
    4. 4. CONTRAST OF TONEFormed by thejuxtaposition of light anddark values. This could bemonochromatic
    5. 5. CONTRAST OF HUE Formed by the juxtaposing of different hues. The greater the distance between hues on a colour wheel, the greater the contrast.
    6. 6. CONTRAST OFSATURATION Formed by the juxtaposition of light and dark values and their relative saturations
    7. 7. CONTRAST OFEXSTENSION Formed by assigning proportional field sizes inrelation to the visual weight of a colour. Also known as the contrast of proportion.
    8. 8. CONTRAST OFTEMPERATURE formed by juxtaposing hues that can be considered ‘warm’ or‘cool’. Also known as the contrast of warm and cool
    9. 9. COMPLEMENTARY CONTRASTformed by juxtaposing complementary colours from a colour wheel or perceptual opposites
    10. 10. SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST Formed when boundaries between colours perceptually vibrate.
