Kandinsky with examples

  1. 1. The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with bass notes or dark lake with treble...<br /> (Wassily Kandinsky, 1866–1944) <br />
  2. 2. Color provokes a psychic vibration. Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body. (Wassily Kandinsky)<br />

  14. 14. Your Assignment:<br />To create a totally non- objective (abstract) piece of art, using lines, colors, shapes, space and composition that represents a piece of music of your choosing.<br />DAY 1<br />Listen to your music and draw to it….just go!<br />Make 3 thumbnail sketches- thinking about what type of lines, shapes and composition you want. (where will you place things, do you want it balanced?)<br />Some things should overlap others<br />Think about movement, repetition, diagonals<br />Check with me then add color to your favorite. Think about what the color you choose expresses. What colors will dominate? Opposite colors or analogous? <br />Check with me… then get a larger piece of paper, and with pencil sketch out your composition. Use a ruler for straight lines!<br />
  15. 15. DAY 2<br />Begin to color your piece. Background and large areas first! Consider blending to add more interest and sophistication. (Instead of straight blue, consider going form light blue to deep blue.)<br />Work neatly, use a ruler for straight lines. <br />
  16. 16. As a picture painted in yellow always radiates spiritual warmth, or as one in blue has apparently a cooling effect, so green is only boring. (Wassily Kandinsky)<br />
  17. 17. The Color Wheel<br />Colors affect us in numerous ways, both mentally and physically. A strong red color has been shown to raise the blood pressure, while a blue color has a calming effect.<br />Being able to use colors consciously and harmoniously can help you create spectacular results.<br />
  18. 18. Warm and cool colors<br />The color circle can be divided into warm and cool colors.<br />Warm colors are vivid and energetic, and tend to advance in space.<br />Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression.<br />White, black and gray are considered to be neutral<br />
  19. 19. Complementary color scheme<br />Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered to be complementary colors (example: red and green).<br />The high contrast of complementary colors creates a vibrant look especially when used at full saturation. This color scheme must be managed well so it is not jarring.<br />Complementary color schemes are tricky to use in large doses, but work well when you want something to stand out.<br />
  20. 20. The edges of contrasting colors may seem to vibrate or move:<br />FREAKY! <br />
  21. 21. Analogous color scheme<br />Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs.<br />Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.<br />
