Color, Mood, and Tone in Art Multimedia Ms. Liscinsky April 22, 2012
Color Color is the element of art that is produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye. There are three (3) properties to color. Hue - the name we give to a color (red, yellow, blue, etc.). Intensity - the strength and vividness of the color. For example, we may describe the color blue as "royal" (bright, rich, vibrant) or "dull" (grayed). Value - lightness or darkness. The terms shade and tint are in reference to value changes in colors.
Tone In art, tone refers to the degree of lightness or darkness of an area. Tone varies from the bright white of a light source through shades of gray to the deepest black shadows. How we perceive the tone of an object depends on its actual surface lightness or darkness, color and texture, the background and lighting.
