Colour Harmonies

Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
In the composition, I aim to make use of the various colour theories to play with the idea of ‘Interaction’.
The experiment will bring out the effect of ‘Yellow-Orange’ have on other colours.

Below are examples of colour theories that I’m applying in my compositions.


Split ComplementryTriad

Final Artwork


The Breakdown.

Line 1: ME 私



#1 Student

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


A student of ADM, (Core Colour: Yellow-Orange), walking towards the school entrance with his heavy backpack.
The colour of his backpack is similar to the ADM building (Purple) (School-Related Items). Green shows the beautiful walkway/scenery while it serve as a balanced to the overall composition.
Reason for Triad: A balance between warm and cool colours. Education teaches us to take pride in our work and at the same time teaches us the balance between school assignments and personal time.


#2 Lack of Sleep

Colour Theory: Complementary
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Blue


While school work maybe hectic most of the time, we require additional time to complete our assignments. To do so, sleeping time have to be reduce to make up for the time use for school assignments.
In this composition, I made use of Complementary colour theory to bring across the idea of ‘choose one only.’ For example, it’s either I decide to sleep more and do less on school assignment vice versa.



#3 Me: Midnight Artist

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


‘Midnight Artist’ as interpreted is an artist who work throughout the night.
The composition uses colour theory: Triad, which focuses on an individual in achieving a balance in his academic performance and non-academic performance. Education motivates the desire in an individual to read, to write and to learn, allowing the student to ‘learn things the hard way’ so that they can be as competitive in the working industry.  Hence, an individual must find ways to ‘balanced’ themselves in order to ‘Know Thyself.




Line 2: A Better Me より良い私を



#4 Fear

Colour Theory: Split – Complementary
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Blue


Everyone have fear, but it varies from different people in different situations. In the composition, I aim to portray the nervousness as nightmare as I usually experience before or during an appearance, usually presentation. (Stage Fright)
The colour theory used in ‘Split-Complementary’. Reason because ‘Nervousness’ happens due to doubt and insecurity. However, once we are used to it, we are able to deliver a confident speech. The fact that ‘Spilt-Complementary’ have 2 paths, it demonstrate the idea of ‘path-crossing’. For example, once we conquer our fear, we move towards a ‘more confident side’ vice versa.


#5 Anxiety

Colour Theory: Split – Complementary
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Blue


Sushi are usually raw and uncooked, sometimes I wonder if it is safe to eat it. I question myself and I seems to develop a mixed feeling of anxiety. The idea shares common identity as the above^ ‘Fear’.  The fear of being judged and criticised. The composition is more or less conveying about the fear of public speaking. Because taking in front of a crowd is too scary, it gives me anxiety. The colour theory is as similar to above^: ‘Spilt-Complementary’. In this composition, there is a high contrast of Purple and Blue as it is based on the colour of a bacteria named: Staphylococcus aureus. In this situation, ‘Spilt-complementary’ colours demonstrate the core colour being devoured by the sub colours.

#6 A Better Me: Me in New Light

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


I always wanted to see myself in a ‘New Light’. Want to see myself becoming stronger in both mentally and physically. My ego is usually the part of me that doesn’t want me to take risks. However, taking risks is not all that terrible it turn out to be. Only if we are willing to get out from our comfort zone, we can then see the world in another dimension.
The colour theory used is ‘Triad.’ This is because there is a need to understand myself through self-assessment and self-understanding. By doing so, I am able to cultivate a balanced self.



Line 3: An Ideal Me 理想的な私



#7 Creatively

Colour Theory: Split – Complementary
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Blue


I always wanted to get creative but sometimes I find it very hard.
Inspired from Lady Gaga – Paparazzi. The music video leave me a very memorable image because she was dressed creatively or rather stupid. Although most of her Music Videos makes no sense, I find her use of visual metaphor creative in her video.
Colour theory use is Split-Complementary, like a Split-Personality. Can sometimes get crazy with idea and sometime cry without idea.



#8 Confidence

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


Shaking is nervousness.
Confidence – The ability to talk to a large group of people.
The most important thing is not about convincing other people, but believing in ourselves. In this composition, the idea was to convey the fearless attitude of going up the stage.
Colour theory used is Triad. Because in colour mixing, if the colours of the triangular sides mix together, the outcome is either black or white. Hence the confidence in addition or subtraction of colour mixing.


#9 An Ideal Me: Super Eugene

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.

To be able to deliver a speech to a large crowd about my ideas and story with confident.
In other words, no fear of being judge by people. So just be yourself, whatever we feel like to be.
Colour theory is Triad.





Line 4: Me in 5 Years 5年間で私


#10 Unique

Colour Theory: Analogue
Core Colour: Orange
Sub Colours: Yellow


Colour theory is Analogue. Because we can be the same as the rest, in terms of knowledge and skills learnt in ADM, but what is unique is that you stand out from them, acting as the core colour, someone unique and important.





#11 Enhancement

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


Competition is in all sphere of student life. So, what make us widen our outlook in this competitive world?  The knowledge and skills we acquired during the 4 years of studies in ADM. (Enhancement), which get us ready to make a living out of our passion.
Colour theory used is Triad. Which the triangle represent the ‘Golden Triangle’.
Self-Confidence: Believe in yourself, in your passion, your skills and talents.
Values & Recognition.


#12 Me in 5 Years: A Special Me

Colour Theory: Triad
Core Colour: Yellow-Orange
Sub Colours: Purple, Green.


With the ‘enhancement’, we widen our knowledge and broaden our outlook in this competitive world. Thats why the person choose me instead of others, because of my unique personality and ability.
Colour theory used is Analogue.






So why Sushi?


You are what you eat.
The food you eat can either be the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of medicine.

Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.

こんにちは~! 😀

Konnichiwa~! 😀

Once again, these are the updates on my Project 3; Ego.

The theme that I am working on is ‘寿司, Sushi’.
In all the 12 compositions, I aim to narrate my personality and character through the use of Sushi.
In the following sections, I will share about my exploration and inspirations from artist.


PS: Apologies if this post made you hungry 😛

‘The Art of Makizushi (Rolled Sushi)’ – Edible Artwork

Takayo Kiyota Makizushi food art involve the use of imagination and strong visualization that is require in the cross-section of the sushi.

Quote from Takayo Kiyota :
“I never know what the inside looks like so I’m never sure if it will come out the way I imagined. And I can’t make edits once it’s done.” “Facial expressions are especially difficult because small ingredients or overly exerted force when wrapping can completely throw things off. It’s always a special moment when I make the first incision to reveal the image.”

My opinion:
Food art has always been around to make out meals look more appetising, it also serves as a form of artistic expression as well. I find Takayo Kiyota ‘artwork’ inspiring because it’s like a complete surprise! Looking back at the research artists I’ve done for the previous projects, the Art of Makizushi serve not only as a form of art expression, it demonstrate the possibility of how other mediums can be incorporated to push art beyond boundaries.

Work-After-Progress (Previous Concept)

Theme: Product Design



Foundation 2D Project 3 – Ego WIP Part 2

Hello there~!

These are my current progress for Project 3! ^^
I really enjoyed doing this project, it’s interesting!
I made 2 different theme while developing the concept.
In a recap, the following are the colour harmony covered,

Colour Harmony:

Split Complementary


Planning Phrase – PART 1

My initial theme was ‘Illumination‘.
That was done by using cut-out Acetate sheets and placing them over a light source.
The overlap layers will create the ‘Black Silhouette’ which forms a picture that describe ‘Me’
For example: A + B = Me.
Hence, by putting A and B over each other will give ‘Me’ through the use of illumination.


I have some other ideas too.
Unfortunately, they are more 3D than 2D as I misinterpreted the ‘no limitations to medium’
For example, a 3d drawer, the use of Ice-cream sticks, fabric, pencil & pen etc.


Hence, I move on to digitization using what was taught in the previous project.
In addition, I made use of Surrealism & a bit of Dada art movement to express my thoughts.
Make a guess what each boxes are conveying. 🙂

The usage of colours adds up to make the pictures more vibrant and exciting.
Colours do make a drawing/painting more interesting. ^^
It kind of bring up the mood and is visually appealing!

While transforming my concept into digital, I think about how colours can be applied to express the emotion.

I borrowed the ‘Neon Addict: The Fluorescent Color Book‘ from the ADM library to learn more about colours.

In my composition, I applied surrealism to tell a meaning.
For example, ‘Fear/Rejection’. I thought about how SAF always ask us: ‘Gentleman, do you have any heart-burning question that you would like to share?’ – Nobody will actually, because sure kena arrow one #Justsaying.. Hence, I made use of Analogous Warm colour to express the fear and rejection.

More details will be covered during the presentation.





Planning Phrase – PART 2 (The Alternative)

I discuss with Joy about my alternate idea during the consultation and I was encourage to design the ‘Japanese Cuisine/Sushi’ as a theme for a the project. Because, as a Japanese-Animation lover, I felt that I should do something related to Japan as well..

I appreciate Joy efforts to organize the consultation and give good valuable feedbacks and suggestion to improve to excel. Thank you Joy! 😀

Hence, while on my way back home, I brought a Sushi combo set to make a story out of them for the alternative.
Sushi Story – WIP

Sorry, still in progress but will be done before the next consultation.
Stay Turned!

PS: Sushi are re-refrigerated.

How does colour have impact on a painting?

Colours breathe life into artworks. Besides enchanting an artwork, it controls how the intended message is being convey. For example (Fig.1) below, shows how colours can affect the mood of an artwork. The use of bright colours in a painting is able to “evoke a certain mood” that creates positive feelings such as happiness while the use of ‘Colours of one Value’ may create negative feelings such as being lifeless.  Research have shown how the choice of colours may affect the artwork. Bright colours such as ‘Yellow’ produce more cheerful feel whereas ‘Red’ reminds us of annoyance. Hence, colours can influence the way we interpret an artwork.



Warm & Cool

Colours can be classified into 2 segments; Warm and Cool colours.

Warm colours such as ‘Red’, ‘Orange’ and ‘Yellow’ are colours of FIRE.
It range from happiness to violence which may represent – Passion, Energy and Impulsiveness.
In other words, Warm colours are eye-catching, makes people excited.


Cool colours, on the other hand, consist of colours such as ‘Green’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Violet’. Those are the colours of WATER. It is usually associated with calmness, trust and sadness. Hence, Cool colours are used to bring soothing harmonious properties.

“Artists are always looking for ways to create meaning in their work.” – Lori McNee

Check this out! > Colours Explanation

Colour Categorisation

According to Moses Harris theory on the colour wheel, ‘Red’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Yellow’ are Primary colours that cannot be created by mixing any other colours together.

Primary Colours: RED, BLUE, YELLOW


The colour wheel was further extended to include the Secondary and Tertiary colours.

Secondary Colours: ORANGE (Red + Yellow), GREEN (Yellow + Blue), PURPLE (RED + BLUE).


Tertiary Colours: (Yellow-Orange), (Red-Orange), (Red-Purple), (Blue-Purple), (Blue-Green) & (Yellow-Green).


Colour Harmony

Definition: something that is pleasing to the eye. It engages the viewer and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the visual experience. When something is not harmonious, it’s either boring or chaotic.

Monochromatic Colour Harmony:


What is that? Colours that are shade, tones or tint variations of the same hue. The hue is affected by the amount of ‘Black’ and ‘White’ present in the mixture.

Why & When do I use it? Recommended in producing a soothing effect through visual perception. Good for creating a balanced and visually appealing artwork.

How does it works? Creates from one of the twelve Hues from the Basic Colour Wheel and repeating it in various Tints, Shades and tones. The monochromatic colour scheme use variation in lightness and saturation of a single colour. 

Analogous Harmony (Dominance):

What is that? Colours that are close proximity to each other on the colour wheel, usually in group of 3, that shares similar hue and saturation. One of the Primary or Secondary will act as the dominant colour.

Why & When do I use it? To create a blending, comfortable design that is pleasing to the eye.

How does it works? Features colours that lie adjacent to each other on the colour wheel. Each of the three colours has one colour in common hence resulting in almost no contrast and less vibrant.

Analogous Harmony: Warm & Cool:



Warm colours are colours of FIRE. Colours such as ‘Red’, ‘Orange’ and ‘Yellow’ associate with WARMTH.



Cool colours are colours of WATER. Colours such as ‘Green’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Violet’ associate with CALMNESS.

When using Analogous Harmony, avoid combining warm and cool colours concurrently.

Complementary Hues (Opposite):

What is that? They are made from colours of the opposite side in the colour wheel.

Why & When do I use it? Use to bring strong contrast in an artwork when colours are at full saturation.

How does it works? Apply a warm colour against a cool colour to create high contrast.

Check this out! >  Complementary Colours in Landscape

Split Complementary (Compound)

What is that? It uses a colour and 2 colours adjacent to its complementary.

Why & When do I use it? To provide high contrast without strong tension of the complementary scheme.

How does it works? *Insert Picture* By combining 1 base colour with 2 colours of the adjacent opposite, not with the complementary colour itself.

Check this out! > Spilt Complementary in Textile

Other Colour Schemes

Triadic Complementary (Triangle)

As the name suggest, it is the selection of colours found in a triangular shape on the colour wheel.






Tetradic Complementary (Rectangle)

The use of 4 colours found in a complementary pair in a rectangular format on the colour wheel.






Square Complementary

Positioned in a square format, the colours used are found on any four corners on the colour wheel.

Andy Warhol

007 Andy Warhol

Left to Right

Mao, Marilyn Monroe, Orangutan

Besides what was covered in Project 1, Andy Warhol is also famous for his Pop art and Silkscreen printing methods. Painting of famous people such as Mao Ze Dong and Marilyn Monroe were painted in harmony.

For example, the painting of ‘Marilyn Monroe’ (above) shows the method of ‘Triadic complementary’ or the 3 Primary Colours (Yellow, Red, Blue), and ‘Monochromatic’ in harmony.

Whereas for the painting of ‘Mao Ze Dong’ (above), Andy Warhol made use of Analogous Harmony (Yellow-Orange, Yellow, Yellow-Green).

Personal Opinion:

I find his use of colours interesting and the painting of the noticeable figures adds up to the overall composition which engage his audience as promised. Although his artwork can exist in many different colours, his choice of colour combinations follows the rule of colour harmony which was present in the colour wheel.

Piet Mondrian

Broadway Boogie Woogie, Die ideale Wirklichkei

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci

In the painting above, Piet Mondrain radically simplified the elements by using primary colours (Red, Blue & Yellow) to bring out the expressionism in his geometric abstracts.

His use of geometric shapes and lines creates a sense of asymmetrical balance in the overall composition. In addition, the use of Negative space, such as the use of Black lines and white planes, sets the contrast and focus in the painting.

Personal Opinion:

I was amazed by how Piet Mondrain use of primary colours to express the harmonious order through art. Also, I like how the grid-like format drawing that brings out a clean, organised yet unfinished feel through the use of negative space. (So which is the focus? – White or the Colours?) In my opinion, I feel the white should serve as the focus due being the dominant in his painting.

Foundation 2D Project 2 – Final Rhymes Summary


Foundation 2D Project 2 – Final Rhymes Summary


Choice of final rhyme

Initial Poem:
What does the bee do? – Christina Rossetti
A Dog & a Cat Went Out Together – Anonymous

A Dog and a Cat went out together.

A dog and a cat went out together,
To see some friends just out of town;
Said the cat to the dog,
“What d’ye think of the weather?”
“I think, Ma’am, the rain will come down.”

“But don’t be alarmed,
For I’ve an umbrella
That will shelter us both,”
Said this amiable fellow.

I find this Nursery Rhyme interesting to work on

  1. Dog & Cat– Getting a Dog & a Cat to accept each other is a difficult task. Some Dogs see Cats as prey and Cats who never lived with Dogs will likely see them as predators and will run or become defensive aggressive. Hence, the Dog and Cat in this Nursery Rhyme explained the impossible possible.
  2. Accepting the unacceptable– “Interracial Marriage” came to my mind after reading through this Nursery Rhyme. “Interracial Marriage” is define as the marriage between two different racial groups.

Because, Love is blind, even if it wasn’t, it would welcome the differences that set people apart. I think it is important to mention about the relationship between the Dog and the Cat and possibly relate this in human context.

Similar to the previous poem I’m working on: “What Does the Bee Do?”
Both talks about relationship but in the different context.
For “What Does the Bee Do?” – It talks about the cohesion between families inside the beehive.
Each Bee have a role in the house hence a awesome workforce.
For “A Dog and a Cat went out together” it’s more focus on the subjects rather than as a whole.


Elaboration of composition

Eugene - 001          In the centre of the composition, it shows the eye view of a Cat and a Dog respectively. The walk out to town seems like a steep and dangerous one.
In the background, it shows a dense forest (Easy to get lost, either trap or get out alive), with scary creatures at the entrance (Evil Hands). The idea was to bring out the unease feeling of the cat and dog. – They know that the journey would be a difficult one, but they have to endure and overcome this challenge.Also, at the foreground, it shows the roots of the trees which justify the difficulty of the journey – Because walking on a path with roots is never flat.


002          The Cat, in on the other hand, is nervous and she feel anxiety. She wonders if the journey to town will be safe. In the composition, the Cat can be seen on 2 narrative viewpoints. On the Left, it shows the negative side of her: Questioning about the rumours she heard, worry about the problems she might face and troubled about the setback she might see. On the Right, it shows the peaceful side of the Cat as she was accompanied by the Dog.



003         In this composition the Dog plays the husband role, to shelter his ‘wife’ from criticism. As shown from the mouth with deadly pointed swords. The Dog took out his Courage and Bravery (Umbrella) to shelter his wife as they travel along the long stretch of ‘London Bridge’ towards town.





          The last composition summaries the Happy Ending of the Cat and Dog after going through all the challenges they faced. They got married. I made use of certain elements as symbolization.

The Owl – Owls traditionally are a much respected creature in many countries across the globe. In marriage, the Owls represent status, intelligence, wealth, guardianship and protection. The couple received blessings from parents of both sides– And they live happily ever after.

Fanfare  A piece of music that the marriage ceremony must have. It’s the basis.(Why Fanfare?) Like they emerge as victory after persuading their parents.

White Rose – A symbol for true love. Also represents Purity, Innocence, Sympathy, and Spirituality. (For Wife during the First and Last day of marriage)

Red Rose – A symbol of Love and Romance

Sun & Moon – The balance of the active and passive energies that becomes harmonious. The couple receive blessing of light from the Sun God and the truth from the Moon Goddess.


Creative Process

The story was based on Richard Loving & Mildred Jeter who married in 1958. They are well-known because they overturned state laws in the United States that prohibited interracial marriages. The wife was only 18 when they got married. Five weeks after their wedding, they were awakened at 2am by police and arrested for being married to one another. Not only the husband was jailed for a year, they face discrimination. Of course they did not gave up, they wrote letter to the American Civil Liberties Union and after 9 years, their case was heard. – The Supreme Court decided to give in to their favour.

Moral of the story: Never lose hope. You never know what tomorrow may bring. There is always a chance to change and make things right.

Artist References

Hannah Hoch – Photo Montage to combine 2 or more images together, at the same time, applying the ‘feminine’-‘Women in real life’’ feel in the artwork.

However, I feel the artwork more of surreal because of the lack of humorous element in it.

Sarolta Ban


She creates amazing surreal pictures by combining ordinary elements, giving them various stories and personalities. Hopping that the meanings of the pictures are never too limited, are open in some way, each viewer can transform them into a personal aspect.

Bán creates dreamlike scenes with photo manipulation software, sometimes layering as many as one hundred individual images to create a final product.
