Presentation on theme: "LISTEN TO DIRECTIONS CLOSELY"— Presentation transcript:

Color blue all three sections to the left of the line that goes from 1 to 4. Color red the entire area above the line from 3 to 6. This step will cover one of the blue sections with red--to make a theoretical violet Color in yellow the sections under the line that goes from 2 to 5. This should cover both a blue and a red section to make green and orange, respectfully. 4. Label each of the colors on the color wheel as to what they should be and what they are made out of. 5. Label each color as a primary or a secondary – if you do not know, wait. This color wheel may now act as a reference for all future color assignments in which you may need an example.

4 Color A ray of light is the source of all color.
We get different colors by the light that is broken into rays of varying wavelengths, which causes the viewer to see different colors. Red is the longest and Violet is the shortest wavelength A prism, soap bubble, oil spill, or a rainbow demonstrates this wavelength division of light into color.

5 Hue The specific name for a pure color.
The feature and individual nature that makes each color different. Each primary and secondary color on the color wheel is called a hue. If it is not on the color wheel, it is not a hue. Red (_________) vs. Pink (___________) Black, white, and grey do not have a hue.

6 THE COLOR WHEEL The most commonly used tool to understand the basis of all color relationships. It consists of three types of colors: primary secondary intermediate (tertiary) Color each type

7 PRIMARY COLORS Yellow, Red, & Blue. They occur naturally.
By mixing, lightening, or darkening the primary colors, all other colors can be made. No other colors can be combined to create the primary colors. red blue yellow

8 SECONDARY COLORS Orange, Green, and Violet.
Are produced by mixing EQUAL amounts of two primary colors. Red + Yellow = Orange Blue + Yellow = Green Red + Blue = Violet orange violet green

Made by mixing a primary color with a secondary color Yellow-Green, Blue-Green Blue-Violet Red-Violet Red-Orange Yellow-Orange Note: The primary color is always listed first. Yellow-Green Yellow-Orange Red-Orange Blue-green Blue-Violet Red-violet The color wheel song

12 4. INTENSITY Colors are brightest in their natural form (hue).
The Brightness or Dullness of a hue is created by adding its compliment on the color wheel or gray. Adding a color’s compliment or gray creates a tone of the original color. Red + green, blue + orange, purple + yellow Colors are brightest in their natural form (hue). pure yellow, pure red, pure blue

13 Objects and rooms with bright high intensity colors seem larger.
Bold and intense colors are best used sparingly or as accents. Objects and rooms with dull low intensity colors seem smaller.

14 5. VALUE The lightness or darkness of a hue.
The value of a hue can be made lighter by adding white, creating a tint of that hue. Pink is a tint of red, Peach is a tint of orange Gives the appearance of a greater room size or height. The value of a hue can be made darker by adding black, creating a SHADE of that hue. Maroon is shade of red. Rust is shade of orange Gives the appearance of a smaller room size or height.


16 WARM COLORS Are considered “warm” because of their association with warm objects of the same color, such as the sun and fire. Are also called advancing colors because they make objects appear larger and closer than they really are. Make a room appear smaller, and feel active, exciting, warmer, and cozy.


18 COOL COLORS Are associated with colors in nature like water, grass, and trees. Are called receding colors because they make objects appear smaller and farther away than they really are. They make a room appear larger and feel restful, peaceful, and cooler.


20 NEUTRAL COLORS Not considered colors because they do not have a hue.
White, Black, and Gray. Brown, tan, and beige are also considered neutral colors but based on the hues red, orange, and yellow.
