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 Intensities.

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.
