Color Harmony Palettes

For this lab, the class had to complete two color harmony palettes; an analogous palette and a split-complementary palette. For analogous, I had to choose three colors that were adjacent from each other on the color wheel and add it to the three interlocking forms. I added one color to tint, two colors for two-colors, and one for shade. For split-complementary, I did the same thing except for the colors. I chose one color and two other colors that were either side of its complements on the color wheel.

Color Harmony: Phase 2

In our lesson we learned all about Color harmony. We also learned about the difference between Analogous Palettes and Split Complementary Palettes. In phase 2 of project 6 i downloaded the template for what you can see above and basically had to experiment with any three colors on the color wheel until we came up with two different palettes that have a good sense of harmony between the colors.


Color Harmony: Phase 2


For the those two images, which is analogous palette and split complementary palette. It was the time to understand more about the color harmony. By picking three colors from the color wheel, and looking from the example, is easier to create the new one. Since I know the concept of the shades, tint, tone, gradient, gray scale, and compliments. It took 15 mins to complete at the class.

Color Harmony: Phase 2

Split Complementary Palette
Analogous Palette








For Analogous Palette, I need to choose three colors from the color wheel that are adjacent to each other. And create color dominance by varying the value of one or more of your chosen hues by adding complement, white, or black. For split complementary palette, I need to pick first color and  two other colors that are are next to the opposite side of the first color on color wheel. Then follow the same step as split complementary palette.

This phase took 30 minutes to complete.

Color Harmony: Phase 1

Photo Link: 1st|2nd|3rd

I found these photos from google images and provided a link where it actually from. The first image is a sky with two colored progression. In which two colors are mixed in the middle and both sides takes two different colors that to show how it progressed to make the middle color. It also contains a little bit of chromatic gray shades in the middle since there are clouds. Secondly, I this image was posted in some kind of corner form, called Big Blue interactive which it said, “In honor of Flowers…” one of the post by Pete from Woodstock on 5/5/2015 11:21 am. There is different types of color that pansies produces as they flower. I picked this one instead of others since others had a relationship in using tint. I can see the progression of shades going on from outer petals toward the inside where it gets darker. Lastly, I picked a flower that had a tint of progression in pink. I was surprised that this is from someone who is using OpenLab and he/she went to a botanical garden and gathered this photos. It clearly shows the tint where the color progressed from the middle of the flower to the outer petals. Since we really different have time to go anywhere as a class, and since I gathered this information from the internet. It took me about five to ten minutes to gathered this images and inks, however it took me about twenty to twenty-five to write this post. About thirty-five minutes to finish this phase.

Color Harmony: Phase 2

From our lesson, I learned the color harmony. There is different kinds of harmony such as use of gray scale, shades, tint, tone, compliments, and gradient. There is color relationships that I learned also, Analogous, Near-Compliments, and Split-Compliments. For our phase 2 of the project #6, I downloaded a template that my professor provided for us to understand and take practice in using tone, two-color, and shades. By picking three colors from the color wheel and using the Analogous and Split-Compliments. This part of the project was pretty easy and understandable, since we learned so much about color, and the way that how each relationships of the color works from our learning today. It took me the whole class to complete phase 2, so about three hours.
