[Color] [Noviembre-Diciembre] [Artes y Humanidades]
Color is……• the element of art that refers to reflected light.
Color theory?• If color theory is simplified, it can be broken down into 3 parts- The color wheel, color value, and color schemes. Each part of color theory builds on the previous. Undrestanding each section of color theory fully, will help you better understand the importance of color theory on the whole.
Color Wheel..• The color wheel was developed by Sir Isaac Newton by taking the color spectrum and bending it into a circle. If you follow around the color wheel, you will find the same order of the color spectrum- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo(blue- violet), and violet.
Primary Colors• Red,• Yellow• Blue• All colors are made out of these three colors.
• Secondary Colors• The mixture of yellow and blue makes GREEN,• The mixture of yellow and red makes ORANGE,• The mixture of red and blue makes PURPLE.
• Tertiary colors are intermediate colors made out of secondary and primary colors. A tertiary color is a color made by mixing one primary color with one secondary color
Value• Value is the lightness or darkness of the color. The lightest value of the color is almost white and the darkest value is almost black.
ValueThere are two types of value:• Tint• Shade Tint• Adding white to a color creates a tint. Adding black creates a shade. For example pink is a tint of red; Shade maroon is a shade of red. See the tints and shades of blue
Color Schemes…Color schemes are ways colors are put together inan intelligent way
Color Schemes…Monochromatic- literally means one (mono) color (chroma). So amonochromaticcolor scheme is made up of one color and it’s shades and tints.
Color Schemes…Analogous colors- are colors that are next to each other on thecolor wheel.When used as a color scheme, analogous colors can be dramatic. Ex. Blue,blue-green, green, and yellow-green; red, red-purple, purple, blue-purple
Color Schemes…Complementary colors- are colors found directly across fromeach other on the color wheel. Complementary color scheme providestrong contrast. Ex. Blue and orange,red and green, yellow-green and red-purple
Color Schemes…Warm colors- colors that are usually associated withwarm things. Ex. Red, yellow,orange
Color Schemes…Cool colors- colors that are usually associated withcool things. Ex. Blue, purple, green
[Texture] [Noviembre-Diciembre] [Artes y Humanidades]
Texture…Is the tactile quality of a surface, such as rough, smooth,sticky, fuzzy, soft or slick. Like line, texture can be real orimplied. A real texture is one that can be felt, such as a pieceof sandpaper, a woven mat, or animal fur. In an artwork, realtexture can be created through thickly applied paint, glossyglazes, and gluing objects to the surface. Implied texture is anillusion of texture created by an artist. As you can see below,this artist created a sense of smooth water and prickly grass.Let´s check some examples…|
