Colour Theory

Colour Harmony




Learning about colour harmony from the Colour Wheel is essential for us to explore the usage of different colours. Exploring and learning about colour harmonies will be a great help for my research in all projects.

We are tasked to come out with 4 illustrations to explain 4 different colour harmonies in digital format.



Complementary uses colours across from each other on a colour wheel.

I played with the illustration of the Red Hot Chili Peppers Logo, thus using Red as the colour of the Logo, and subsequently Green as the background.





Split-Complementary compromises of the use of one base colour, and then two colours adjacent to the complementary colour of the base. I chose Blue-Green as my base colour and thus derived with Red and Orange.

Triadic compromises of colours even spaced out on the colour wheel. I started off with Red-Orange and derived with Yellow-Green and Blue-Purple.

Analogous uses colours adjacent to each other on the colour wheel. I base my colour on Blue-Violet and derived with Violet and Blue.

Plants. Roots. Leaves. Stalks. Barks. Seeds. Fruits.

I am inspired by Chinese artist, Cai Guo Qiang. The use of an unconventional medium in Gunpowder, greatly affects the final outcome of any artwork. Result is in an outcome that is totally unexpected and at the same time natural.

My chosen medium is the use of Flora and Fauna, as I too want to attempt to work with something that is natural, and in turn surprising.

The idea of translating lines and dots into emotion using flora and fauna.


Thats a wrap.
