   SEEING COLOR
• Staring at a color, what

looking?
• How do you determine
what colors to use when
mixing?
• What technique do you
use to apply color?
 COLOR HARMONY
• Triads
• Adjacent
• Complementary
• Split Complementary
• Double Split Complementary
  COLOR HARMONY
• Triads - any three colors
equidistant on the color wheel.




Example one: Use of Primary Colors
  COLOR HARMONY
• Triads - any three colors
equidistant on the color wheel.




    Example two: Use of Secondary Colors
   COLOR HARMONY
• Triads - any three colors
equidistant on the color wheel.




Example three: Use of Tertiary Colors
  COLOR HARMONY
• Adjacent - any two colors
next to one another on the color
wheel.
                                    Red Orange


                                          Red




  Example one: Use of Warm Colors
  COLOR HARMONY
• Adjacent - any two colors
next to one another on the color
wheel.
                                    Blue Green


                                         Blue




  Example two: Use of Cool Colors
  COLOR HARMONY
• Complimentary - any two
colors opposite one another on
the color wheel.
                          Red Violet


                          Yellow Green
  COLOR HARMONY
• Split - Complimentary - any color
on the color wheel and the colors

  COLOR HARMONY
• Double Split - Complimentary -
