OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS… I forgot to upload my research on Ego.. :0 Here it is uploaded in Y1Sem2, present Yi Ling is trying to salvage the past Yi ling’s mistake.
Before we dive into Project 3: Ego, let me do some research~
In 4 rows of 3 squares, create a self portrait based on four different settings.
For each of the 4 rows, use the first column to represent yourself and the second column to represent a setting and third column to represent an imagined outcome. For instance, you (first column) at a family gathering (second column) equals to being the subject of scrutiny by relatives (third column).
Apply your understanding of colors and color theory to visually represent the multifacted nature of your personality. You may choose to do this digitally or by hand (or mix-media). There are a total of 12 image compositions.
Consider how colors can be used to suggest or evoke the feelings in the various representations as well as the cultural context of the various settings.
There are no limits to medium, technique or style. However the colors will have to be selected to represent one or few of the color harmonies:
- Monochrome Harmony
- Analogous Harmony
- Analogous Harmony Warm and Cool
- Complementary Hues
- Split Complementary
Color has 3 attributes:
If the surface or light does not have these three essential qualities, then it is not a color.
- The definition of Hue is varies for different experts. However, based on my research, Hue is basically a color. Hue are the colors on the outer rim of a subtractive color wheel.
- Saturation is the purity or intensity of a color. Value and Saturation are not attached concepts – color can change its saturartion, but leave its value unchanged.
- Value is the difference between light and dark. By adding more white to a certain color (lets say Red), the hue (Red) is still the same, but of different value.
Harmony in visual design means all parts of the visual image relate to and complement each other. Harmony pulls the pieces of a visual image together.
Monochrome Harmony are a value-based compositions that contain only one hue. There are no hue relationships in a monochrome harmony, only saturation and value relationships.
Analogous harmonies contain more than one hue, but all of the hues in this kind of harmony are adjacent on a color wheel. The adjacent colors on the color wheel are very easy to the eyes and peaceful to look at.
Analogous Harmony Warm and Cool
Complementary hues are complementary colors that are opposite each other in a color wheel.
In addition to Split Complementary, there is also…
Triadic color scheme uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.
Teiradic/ Rectangle colour scheme
Square color scheme
As of now, I am rather intrigued by the use of relative positions of the hues in the color wheel. Initially I thought that the color wheel was a mere collection of colors. But now I know that there is more than meets the eyes, and the relationships between the opposite, adjacent and uses the two colors adjacent to its complement color; could result in different meanings, and emotions that are evoked in an artwork. I am very interested in the exploration of Split Complementary Colors as it seemed modern and has a hint of pop-art to it as I search for relevant artworks that exhibits Split Complementary Colors.
