Title: Color Wheel in Tempera
Year Created: Spring, 2004
Width: 11 inches
Height: 14 inches
Theme: Color and Design
Edition Size: Original
Description: Using the Primary Colors, Yellow,
Blue, and Red, plus Black and White; Our assignment was to create a Color
Chart that includes Primary, Secondary, Intermediates, Tints, Shades and
Secondary colors are created by mixing two Primary Colors
together. Intermediates are colors that are created from mixing a Primary
and Secondary Color. Tints are colors mixed with White. Shades are mixed
with Black. And Intensities are created by mixing various amounts of a
Primary and its opposite on the Color Wheel Secondary.
The Color Wheel design was developed in Adobe Illustrator.
The labels too were created in that application and printed out.
The paint swatches were created on Watercolor paper and cut into shapes
for the design. The labels and color swatches were cut out and glued
onto an 11x14 sheet of Bristol Board.
I enjoyed this assignment because I learned a lot about
color from it.
