Create a painting using;
an object with all 12 colors of the color wheel.
an object with a set of complementary colors.
an object with a set of analogous colors
an object with a monochromatic color
scheme (5 values).
an object with a black and white value scale
an object with either warm or cool colors.
an object with a triadic color scheme.
3. Student Examples:
4. Color Scheme Definitions (1):
Monochromatic: Different values of a single hue. Tints and shades of
Complementary Colors:Colors opposite each other on the color wheel.
5. Color Scheme Definitions (2):
3. Triadic Colors:
Any 3 colors equidistant on the color wheel (if you
can make a equilateral triangle in the color wheel, then those three colors
are triadic) Example: Red, yellow and blue
4. Analogous Colors:3-5 Colors that are side by side on the color
wheel and share a hue.
6. Color Scheme Definitions (3):
5. Warm Colors:
Colors that remind you of
fire, lava and the sun. Examples of warm colors
are red-violet, red, red-orange, orange, yellow,
yellow-orange and yellow-green. Warm colors
take up half of the color wheel.
6. Cool Colors: Colors that remind you of ice,
water, soil and snow. Examples of cool colors
are blue, blue-green, green, violet, blue-violet,
red-violet and yellow-green. Cool colors take up
half of the color wheel.
7. Color Scheme Definitions (4):
7. Neutral Colors:
Neutral colors are created by combining even amounts of
complements to create muddy earthy tones (example, orange + blue= grey)
In clothing a neutral is grey and khaki. In paint it is more muddy shades of brown.
Neutral colors are black, white, grey, and brown.
