  • 7. What happens when you mix complementary colors? + + +
  • 8. What happens when you mix complementary colors? + + + = a neutral grey or brown
  • 9. Color Bias Wheel
  • 10. Make brightest purple
  • 11. Make duller purple because some blue and orange are mixed
  • 12. M a k e d u l l e s t purple, because blue is mixed with orange and red is mixed with green.

  • 16. The 3 Properties of Color Hue Value Intensity
  • 17. Properties of Color • HUE • VALUE • INTENSITY (or saturation) (HateVideogames Immensely)
  • 18. Properties of Color HUE - the name of the color, the part of the color spectrum that the color belongs to: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or violet.

If colored paints were actually pure color- every time any two “pure” colors of paint were mixed you would get black. The bits of blue in the blue paint would absorb the red and yellow light. The bits of yellow paint would absorb the red and blue light. No light would escape from the paint, and you’d see a perfectly black surface.
  • 21. Properties of Color V A L U E - lightness or darkness of the hue. Mark Rothko, Untitled (Black on Gray), 1969/1970.
  • 22. MUNSELL VALUES
  • 23. InherentValue: “Normal” hues have different values.
  • 24. Grayscale Chart Low Key High Key
  • 25. Shadows in black and white... 7-8 6 3 4-5 2-3 1 3 3
  • 26. Properties of Color VALUE—lightness or darkness of the hue. –  Adding white produces aTINT –  Adding black produces a SHADE
  • 27. Painting with a limited number of values
  • 28. David Hockney, Mist, 1973. From The Weather Series. Lithograph, 37 X 32 in. Painting with a limited number of values
  • 29. Properties of Color INTENSITY—The brightness of a color. Not to be confused with lightness, which is value. –  Also called chroma or saturation.
  • 30. Adding a color’s complement will make that color LESS INTENSE.
  • 31. Phillip Otto Runge

  • 40. Analogous Color Scheme: A picture that uses several (often 3) colors that are right next to each other on the color wheel. Color Schemes
  • 41. Split Complementary Color Scheme: An even wider range of possibilities. Rather than pair colors of that are in opposite positions on the color wheel, the artist completes the scheme using the two colors on either side of one of the complements. Color Schemes
  • 42. D o u b l e - S p l i t Complementar y Color Scheme: Rather than pair colors of that are in opposite positions on the color wheel, the artist completes the scheme using the two colors on
