COLOR SCHEMES Students will Identify, create, and present visual examples of major color schemes.

COLOR HARMONIES A color harmony is a pleasing combination of colors based on their respective positions on the color wheel. The surest and easiest way to achieve success when using color is to follow one of the standard color harmonies. 7 color harmonies bring colors together in combinations that are very pleasing to the eye.

MONOCHROMATIC

MONOCHROMATIC (Related)
Simplest scheme which uses a single hue from the standard color wheel. HINT: Mono = One Chromatic = Color Using tints, tones or shades of the same hue Accents of neutrals colors can be used to add interest to the color scheme. Example: royal blue, baby blue, slate blue, navy blue

Examples of Monochromatic Schemes

ANALOGOUS

ANALOGOUS (Related) Created by using hues that are next to each other on the color wheel. Usually three to five hues are used. Since they are related, they blend well together. Example: violet, red-violet, red An analogous color scheme will look best if you choose one color as the dominant color and use smaller amounts of the others to add interest and variety.

Examples of Analogous Color Schemes

COMPLEMENTARY

COMPLEMENTARY (Contrasting)
Made by selecting two colors that are directly opposite each other on the color wheel. Brightest and most intense form of each color when these are used together. Example: Red and Green A complementary scheme can make a room look bright and dramatic. Varying the values and intensities of the colors can lesson the contrast of the 2 colors.

Examples of Complementary Schemes

Examples of Split-Complementary Schemes

SPLIT-COMPLEMENTARY Combining a color with the two colors found on either side of the color’s complement. Blue’s complement is Orange, so you would use the two colors on each side: yellow-orange, and red-orange. With this color selection, the main color is the dominant one. The two colors on each side of the complement are accent colors. Example: Red, blue-green, yellow-green

Uses any three colors that are equally distant from each other on the color wheel. Red, Yellow, Blue Green, Orange, Violet Yellow-Orange, Red-Violet, Blue-Green Care and skill are needed to achieve pleasing Triadic harmonies. Changing values and intensities can lessen the sharp contrasts.

Black, grey, and white Brown, tan, and beige can also be used.

ACCENTED-NEUTRAL Small amounts of another color(s) added to a neutral color scheme to give the room more interest. Example: black, white, red

Remember the factors that affect color choices……
Mood What mood do you want to create People Think about the people who will be in the area Style The style may influence the color choice(s). Spanish style = rust colored walls Items in the room Choose an item in the room, and one of it’s colors as the main color for your room. Then choose accent colors based on your knowledge of color schemes. Time The amount of time that will be spent in the room Existing Colors Some room components can’t be changed so incorporate them. Adjacent Rooms Create a unified look with rooms that you can see. Lighting Natural light shows objects in true colors. Artificial lights make color appear blue or yellow

Once you have considered factors that affect your color choices…
Begin with a color concept, such as a dominant color. Favorite color, color of a rug, piece of furniture, color that sets the desired mood to create. Rule of thumb: Avoid too much and too little color Large quantities of intense color can overpower

ASSIGNMENTS – COLOR SCHEME
8. COLOR SCHEME CHART – USING THE PUNCHED PIECES FROM THE COLOR WHEEL SQUARES, GLUE THESE AROUND THE COLOR 5 COLOR WHEELS. USING A FASTENER, ATTACH EACH OF THE SMALLER COLOR SCHEME CIRCLES TO THE COLOR WHEELS. 9. COLOR SCHEME TEAR SHEET Locate a clear picture that illustrates 1 of the 7 color schemes. Follow Presentation guidelines and mount this picture. Explain your choice of picture. 10. Distribution of Color Chart Color in the circles to represent what you envision for each of the areas of the room. Follow Presentation guidelines and mount this picture. Explain your choice of picture. This chart will be used in the (11) Impact of color assignment below. 11. Impact of color Apply rules of color and color harmonies to each of the 5 room pictures. Use the Distribution of color chart for the final picture. Write an analysis of each picture. What are the different appearances and feelings of each room?

FINAL UNIT ASSIGNMENT 12. FAVORITE ROOM ANALYSIS: WHAT COLORS DO YOU SEE AND WHAT IS THE INTENDED MEANING OF EACH COLOR? WHAT COLOR SCHEME(S) ARE VISIBLE IN THE PICTURE. 13. ELEMENTS IN ACTION USING ALL OF THE ELEMENTS OF DESIGN (SPACE, SHAPE AND FORM, TEXTURE, LINE, AND COLOR) GIVE 3 DIFFERENT LOOKS TO THE SOFAS. KEEP 1 DESIGN THE SAME THROUGHOUT ALL 3 PICTURES. ANALYZE HOW EACH PICTURE CHANGES ITS APPEARANCE BECAUSE OF THE ELEMENTS YOU CHOOSE.
