Color Contrast in Painting







I wrote about color complements and the Triadic and Munsell color wheels. In my above unfinished color study, I used the complementary pair, orange (yellow red) and blue. On both color wheels these hues are complements and enhance each other when placed side by side. It is best to mute (dull) one hue, i.e. blue; this will increase the intensity of the pure orange. If you mix complements as I did in my sky, the colors are dulled. In the value image (gray scale), you see the limited number of shapes and their oblique directions. The dominant value is mid tone; this contrasts with the smaller amounts of light and dark values. The dominant color temperature is warm. I posterized this image to 2 values (notan) in Photoshop. You can still read the image and I have achieved a dynamic design.
