If you remember from value This painting was created using stippling. This technique started an entire movement called Pointillism. This technique was based on a good understanding on how our eyes work when we see color!
Ask yourself What does RGB Stand for? What is CMYK? How does a computer screen or TV show you pictures?
RGB RGB Stands for red green and blue. It is the way your computer screen or TV or phone shows you pictures. If you were to look really close to the screen, which I would not recommend, you would see dots of color. Or if on your ipad screen or phone screen, if you are very careful, you could put a single drop of water and through that you would get an amplified view of the little dots of color. RGB is the way to mix color when using light.
CMYK CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black These are the colors your printer uses to mix together to create all the colors.
So Our technology today gained its knowledge on how the eye sees color from that wonderful movement of Pointillism! Thank you Seurat!
Color The visual response to wavelengths of light. The key terms we will need to know when we deal with color are: Primary, secondary, tertiary, warm, cool, hue, and intensity
Hue Another word for color Color is grouped into 3 main categories
Primary Colors Red, Yellow and Blue Mixing those colors together we can get all the other colors.
Secondary Colors The colors we get by mixing 2 of the primary colors together: Green, Orange, Violet
Tertiary colors The color we get when we add a primary color and a secondary color together. When we write it the tertiary colors we always put the primary first. For example there is red-orange., Yellow-green.
How to make a color wheel: Draw a circle Then draw a line dividing that circle in half Draw a second line dividing the circle in half the other way Then the tricky part, draw a line about 1/3 rd of the way through on e of the 4 pie slices and keep it going clear across. Then after another 1/3 rd draw a second line clear across, so that means two of the four slices you had before are divided into thirds. Repeat the process with the other slices.
Your Assignment You are going to make a color wheel, but no ordinary color wheel. Make your color wheel unique by changing its shape so it is no longer just a circle although the colors do still form a circle. Give it a theme. There should be a spot that has a tint, a shade and the hue. Then there will be an area that has an accent of the complimentary color.
Here are examples Not all the examples have everything you need though, some were just put in their creativity. Look for what is required!!
