#5 Hand Tint Using Color & Emphasis• A splash of color!
Artistic Choice• As the artist, you get to decide what you want your viewers to see.• For this project, you will use the principle of emphasis through the element of color.• The color will draw the viewers eye through hand tinting.• Artists use to actually use oils and paint on top of photographs. We will be doing the digitally of course though.
Color Choice• Remember our color wheel? – Primary Colors • Red, Yellow, & Blue – Secondary Colors • Orange, Green, & Purple – Complementary Colors • Colors that are across from each other on the color wheel • Red & Green • Orange & Blue • Yellow & Purple• Think about pastels & bright colors
