Chevreul’s RYB chromatic diagram

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Primary Colors (red, yellow, blue): Colors that cannot be mixed from other colors.

Secondary Colors (green, violet, orange): Colors mixed from two primary colors.

Contrast: Relevant difference.

Three ways colors contrast:

1. Hue (complementary colors = high contrast)

2. Value (light/dark)

3. Intensity / Saturation / Chroma / Brightness (pure colors are brighter than mixed colors)

Complementary Colors: Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel (red/green, blue/orange, yellow/violet). They brighten each other when viewed together. Two complementary colors mixed together + white = gray.

Analogous Colors: Colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel (colors that are harmonious have low contrast).

Tertiary Colors: A color made by mixing one primary color with one secondary color (red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red-violet).

AIIM: Day 15 – India Ink Ink Wash: Apple in Shoebox

October 27, 2010

Drawing & Perspective

Today we made an ink wash piece using India Ink, which is a type of black waterproof drawing ink. An ink wash is similar to a watercolor piece, except you’re only using one color and variations of that color, in this case black and grey. I worked on this 9″x12″ piece for about two hours.

Instead of using the overhead projector to draw the apple/shoe box combo, which is what we’ve been using to display still life photos that we then work off of, we brought shoe boxes and apples from home, and shined flashlights on them. It was pretty impossible to get the lighting to look right because the lights in the classroom were on.
