Color The visual response to the wavelengths of sunlight identified as red, green, blue and so on; having the physical properties of hue, intensity, and value.

Primary colors are colors from which all other colors are made.
RED BLUE YELLOW SECONDARY COLORS Secondary colors that are created from equal amounts of a pair of primary colors ORANGE GREEN VIOLET

Tertiary Colors red-violet blue-violet blue-green yellow-green
Tertiary colors are colors made from equal amounts of a pair of primary and secondary colors. red-violet blue-violet blue-green yellow-green yellow-orange red-orange

Three consecutive colors on the color wheel
Analogous colors Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange. Three consecutive colors on the color wheel

Complementary Colors Complementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other in the color wheel. Examples are red and green, red-purple and yellow-green. In the illustration, there are several variations of yellow-green in the leaves and several variations of red-purple in the orchid.

TINT Tints are light values of a color. One usually makes tints by mixing a color with different amounts of white. SHADE Shades are dark values of a color. One usually makes shades by mixing a color with different amounts of black.

A Monochromatic color scheme is one color.
The primary color is integrated with neutral colors such as black, white, or gray.

SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY The split complementary scheme is a variation of the standard complementary scheme. It uses a color and the two colors adjacent to its complementary color. Triadic Color Scheme The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel.

Let’s review what we just learned on our handhelds.
1. Open up the color review for students PowerPoint in Docs-To-Go 2. Open it and answer the questions using the list view. 3. We will review it together
