Finally, we’re on the final project of the semester – Project EGO. In this assignment, we will be venturing into Colour Theory and how they fit in together in order to work in harmony. Here is my research on the Color Theory!
Without further ado, let’s begin!
The Colour Wheel
Primary colours are known as source colours, meaning that they cannot be made with mixtures of other colours.
consist of red, yellow and blue
The intensity of a single colour.
The relative lightness and darkness of a single hue.
A play in tonal value and intensity of a single colour, enhancing the style and thematic of the main hue.
MONOCHROMATIC PHOTOGRAPHY WORKS:
Colours that sit side by side on the Colour Wheel. The colour scheme that is most pleasing to the eyes since the transition of colours are sooooo gradual. (E.G. yellow, orange, green)
Colors involved: Yellow, Orange, Green! Thus making it an analogous scheme.
They are colours that lie opposite to one another on the wheel which in turn creates a strong contrast! (E.G. red & green, blue & orange)
COMPLIMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKS
Created by joining a hue with the two hues beside its complement. (E.G. blue with red-orange and yellow-orange)
SPLIT COMPLIMENTARY PAINTING
Made up of three hues equally spaced around the colour wheel which creates an energetic set of colours with divergence given how the three hues are spaced so widely apart on the colour wheel.
TRIADIC PHOTOGRAPHY WORK
Here we see how colours work together in order to create a harmonious-looking design and it is a key component to any forms of design. (e.g. logo design, graphic design, illustrations, photography)
Well, I’ll see you in my next post.
