a-Color is what we see whenever light hits an object and reflects back to our eyes. Color is a very important element in art because it you can use it in so many different ways. You have cool colors(blue, purple. green) and warm colors(red, orange, yellow) that can be used to give the piece a different energy. Cool and warm colors can also vary whether they are used with another cool or warm color. For example, if you use red with yellow it will be very warm, but if you use red with blue it could tend to be a little more on the side of cool color. All of that has to do with the harmony of the colors. There are three main aspects to color when it comes to art. You have hue, value, and intensity. Hue is basically just what color something is, red, blue, green etc. Thoughtco.com says value “refers to the visible lightness or darkness of a color”. Intensity is the brightness of you colors. Your colors will have a much stronger intensity if you do not mix them with anything. You can change the value and intensity of your colors with by adjusting the tint. Tint is whenever you take a color and you lighten it with white. Shade is whenever you take a color and darken it with black. The main difference between tint and shade is that one of them increases the darkness and one of them reduces the darkness. Primary colors are red, blue, and yellow. You cannot use any combinations of colors to create primary colors, but other colors can be made by mixing the primary colors. When you mix two primary colors together you get orange, green, or purple which are the secondary colors. According to merrium-webster.com a tertiary color is “a color produced by an equal mixture of a primary color with a secondary color adjacent to it on the color wheel”. The color wheel arranges all of the colors in “chromatic relationship.” Directly across from a color on the wheel is the colors opposite, so across from blue is orange, and across from red is green. The opposite color is also known as complementary color.
b- Color is produced when light strikes an object and is reflected back to the eye. Greek philosopher Aristotle suggested that all colors came from black and white, which is the earliest documented theory of color. He also believed that four basic colors represents the elements of Earth, red is fire, blue is air, green is water, and gray is earth. It was later that British physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton figured out that clear light was made up of seven visible colors. These seven colors are what artist call ROYGBIV of the rainbow, which are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Primary colors are yellow, red, and blue. They are considered the root or building blocks for all the other colors. Primary colors contains only one pigment, meaning they cannot be made from mixing other colors on the color wheel. Secondary colors are purple, green, and orange. Secondary colors are made from mixing together two primary colors. When mixing the two primary colors to make a secondary color, there should be an even amount of color from both primary colors to achieve the true colors purple, green, and orange. Green is a combination of blue and yellow, purple is a combination of red and blue, and orange is a combination of red and yellow. Tertiary colors are made when mixing primary colors with secondary colors. They are a result of taking a primary color and mixing it with its nearest secondary color, ending up with a color in between the two. An example of a tertiary color is red and purple being mixed to create magenta and mixing blue and green together to get teal. A tint lightens a color, but doesn’t brighten the color, which is why a tint is also know as a pastel version of a color. To create a true tint, an artist will have to add white to any individual color on a color wheel or any of these pure colors mixed. Depending on how much white an artist mixes into a color determines the lightness of that color. A shade is a mixture of pure colors with black. A shade darkens color, remaining the same color but only a darker version. Same with tint, depending on how much black an artist adds to a color will determine how much darker it will become.
