+ Color Vocabulary: Color – element of art that is seen by the way light reflects off a surface. Color can be used to express emotion or symbolism. Hue – One of the 3 properties of color. The name of a spectral color. Red, yellow, blue, orange, violet and green are some examples. Value – One of 3 properties in color that refers to the lightness or darkness of the color. Intensity – One of 3 properties in color that refers to the brightness or dullness of a color. Pure Hue is high-intensity while a dulled hue is low-intensity.
+ High and Low Intensity High IntensityLow Intensity
+ Color Vocabulary Color scheme – group of colors that create satisfying effects when placed together. Examples: warm, cool, complementary, monochromatic. Primary Colors – red, yellow and blue. Original colors, cannot be created by mixing other colors. Secondary Colors – orange, violet and green. These colors can be created by mixing together two primary colors.
+ Vocabulary Cont’d: Tertiary (intermediate) – colors on color wheel that are found between a primary color and a secondary color. Examples: yellow-orange, orange-red, red-violet. Monochromatic Colors – tints and shades of a single color. Analogous Colors – colors found next to each other on the color wheel. Example: Blue, Blue-violet, Violet
+ Color Vocabulary Continued Complementary Colors – colors found opposite each other on the color wheel. Violet & yellow, orange & blue, red- orange & blue-green. Color Triads – three colors spaced in equal distance from each other on the color wheel. (Ex: Red, yellow, blue) Split Complementary Colors – one complement with the neighboring colors of its complement. Ex: Violet, yellow- orange, yellow-green.
+ Vocabulary Cont’d: Warm Colors – colors reflecting sunlight and warmth. Red, orange, yellow. Objects appear closer in space. Cool Colors – colors that are found in shadows and in colder objects. Violet, blue & green. Objects appear farther away. Tint - a color plus white/lights, can be created using light pressure. Shade – a color plus black/darks. Can be created using heavier pressure.
+ Mixing color When mixing color, it is important to distinguish between additive and subtractive mixing. Additive – refers to mixing light rays. Subtractive – refers to mixing paint +-
+ Additive Color Mixture When mixing light rays of red, green and blue, you create white.
+ Subtractive Color Mixing When mixing the primary colors in paint, you create black/brown.
+ Name that Color Scheme! Monochromatic red-violet
+ Assignment: Art I: Complete the color wheel using colored pencil – you can only use the primary colors. Mix to create secondary and tertiary. Add a color scheme to your balance design. You may choose to use one or combine two schemes!
