Color Interaction: phase 1

I choose this picture that I took around the high line. Because the whole picture is made up of color. I took it during the summer and the picture pretty much shows that it was taken around a warm sunny day. The contrast on the mural was edited a bit but in the original it express the same amount of contrast.

This picture I took around my block, the natural light in the sky during the sunset was very beautiful and eye attracting that I had to take it.

Color Interaction Parings: Phase 1


The left picture is the atmospheric perspective of the sky in Alaska. I see these colors combining together and different shades of blue and orange. I see tint of purple and greenish color and I think that no color is being center of attention. It catches the person interest towards  above then slowly down in the composition. In the second picture it shows a person head with different colors. There are colors and different shades of it because of the background color surrounding it. For instance, the blue looks light on the orange but not in the red.

Color Interaction: Phase 1

From my observation several different colors are interacting throughout both compositions. The colors in the first composition create an amazing visual of a person, this really caught my attention when I first spotted it. The purple and green really go together quite well, to where it makes the picture come alive in a way. The 2nd piece of art shows what looks like a room, divided into several different pieces. I personally like this image because the sky blue brings all the colors together, and everything else falls into place.  The pink to me fades a little bit and the blue stands out, in which this shows a great amount of interaction between all the colors.

The Night Cafe By Van Gogh

After watching the videos and reading the biography on Josef Alber , I was able to find examples with color interactions. In the first photo, it shows the combinations of red yellow and white to show less saturated colors. In the second photo, shows the two complementary colors, orange and blue, pop out of the picture to create the illusion that it coming out of the painting. In the third , the red, yellow and orange work together very well in this painting.

For the first image I choose it because the red, and green goes well together. It’s also the first thing that pop’ed up when I looked up color interactions when I had no other idea what to look for just like the second image. The yellow lights in the image, as well as the purple also goes well with the red, and green. For the second image, the yellow resonates with the blue, and the green tree also goes well with what’s in the image. The mixed colors on the ground also do wonders with whats on the image.


Color Interaction: Phase 1

While watching the video and playing around with the app, I was thinking what things in nature have an interesting arrangements of color and three things came up. The Sunburst which is a hot spring in Yellowstone National Park ( a place that is in my bucket list), the Cat Eye Nebula, and the Carina Nebula. All these three things have an amazing interesting use of color, but what is the most amazing is that it just happened. Nobody arranged the colors in these three natural objects . For example, the colors in the hot springs is just different colonies of bacteria as well as decaying enzymes. The nebulas are interstellar clouds of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. So as you can see sometimes beautiful things are not made, they just happen.
