What are the primary colors?They are the three pigment colors that cannotbe made by mixing any other colors.MAGENTA, CYAN, and YELLOW areprimary colors.These three colors are mixed to create allother colorsCan I make primarycolors?Remember, you cannot make primaries; youmust buy themPrimary colors
By mixing two primary colors, asecondary color is created:• Magenta + Yellow = Orange• Yellow + Cyan = Green• Cyan + Magenta = PurpleWhat are the secondary color?Orange, green, and purple are secondary colors.Can I make secondaries color?Remember, You can make secondaries. You do not have tobuy them.Secondary colors
•red-orange•yellow-orange•yellow-green•blue-green•blue-purple•red-purpleTertiary colors are also known as intermediate colors•We use the names of the two secondary colors to describe them.•When a hue is yellow and green at the same time, we call it a yellow-green ora green- yellow, depending on whether it is closer to green or yellow.Tertiary colors
The properties ofcolourWe use comparison to describecolours: apple green, sky blue,poppy red, etc.A more correct way to define acolor, is to describe its properties.The three properties of colour areHUE, VALUE andSATURATION
What is the hue?•HUE is the name for eachcolor: green, blue, red-purple,etc.
What is the value?Value describes thedarkness or lightnessof a colour.• color + white = tint• color + black = shade
Tints are lightenedcolors.Colors mixed withwhite are called tintsTintsTintsThis is an example of a value scale for thetints of blue.
Shades are darkenedcolors.Colors mixed with black arecalled shades.ShadesShadesThis is an example of a value scalefor the shades of blue.Always begin with the color and add justa bit of black at a time to get the desiredshade of a color.
What is the saturation?If white, black or anothercolor is added to a pure color, itssaturation decreases andits intensity drops..A pure color is at its highestsaturation, its most intense andbrightest formLow saturation High saturationA saturated hue is not mixed with other colorsSaturation or intensity refers tothe "purity" of color.
Define the following colors describing its properties.Remember, the three properties of colour are HUE, VALUE and SATURATIONMagenta.(High saturation)Light Magenta.(Low saturation)Dark Magenta.(Low saturation)
Paintings with one hue and its values :Monocromatic paintings:
Warm colors are made up of the redhues, such as red, orange, andyellow.They lend a sense of warmth,comfort, and energy to the colorselection.They also produce a visual resultthat causes these colors to appear tomove toward the viewer, and tostand out from the page.
Cool colors come from the blue hues,such as blue, cyan, and green.Cool colors give an impression of calm,and create a soothing impression.They will also appear to recede fromthe viewer, so they are good to usefor page backgrounds.
Neutral ColorsThe neutral colors contain equalparts of each of the three primarycolors.Where equal parts of twocomplementary colors aremixed together (here,green and red), a neutralbrown is created.Black, white, gray and sometimesbrown are considered "neutral”.
