4 “Desire to fit a chosen contour, such as the pyramid, cone, cylinder or cube, coupled with a lack of proper test, has led to many distorted statements of color relations, & it becomes evident, when physical measurement of pigment values & chromas is studied, that no regular contour will serve.”– Albert H. Munsell, A Pigment Color System & Notation
5 Hue – measured around horizontal circles Chroma – measured radially outward from the vertical axis Value – measured vertically
8 Example of Munsell’s System A Light Yellow Hue witha Dark Color Mixed In =5Y 8/12Pure yellow (5Y) of light hue (8) with a hint of the complimentary color purple (identified by its value in the mix as 12)
33 The Mix Primary Color system in art classes. Red + Yellow = Orange Yellow + Blue = GreenBlue + Red= Violet
34 RYB = Duller Color In RYB subtractive mixing, R + Y + B = Black. The secondary colors in RYB subtractive mixing are duller than both the CMY Subtractive triad and Additive’s RGB triad secondary colors.RYB (Subtractive)CMY (Subtractive)RGB (Additive)https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rhucl_2K1jY/TWqXTwYRdjI/AAAAAAAAHZ4/tmz6L6uGmT0/s1600/farbsub.jpg
36 Complementary Colors at opposite ends of the color wheel. Creates a visual vibration.Ex. Green and Red.
37 Split ComplimentaryColor scheme that uses two adjacent colors and their compliment.There is a visual contrast as the Complimentary scheme but its easier on the eyes.Ex. Green, purple, and orange,
38 Double ComplimentaryDouble complimentary uses four colors, these are two pairs of complimentary colors.Complimentary colors intensify each other; this would make some colors combinations easier to look at than others.Ex. Red, Orange. Green, and Blue.
39 AnalogousAn analogous color scheme uses colors which are next to each other on the color wheel.This color scheme is usually the most pleasing to the human eyes, since the colors carry similar wavelengths.Ex. Cool colors, Light-Blue, green, and light-green
40 TriadicA combination of three colors on the color wheel which are evenly spaced on the color wheel.This scheme tends to be pretty vibrant regardless of combination of colors.Ex. Purple, Orange, and green.
41 SquareThis scheme consists of four color evenly spaced of the color wheel.Ex. Red, blue, green, and yellow.
42 MonochromaticThis is color scheme where you use a single hue to make tints or shades of a color to explore saturation and lightness.Ex. Red to pink.
