Color Harmony: Phase 1


This Dolphin fish is a good example of color to color progression because of the way it starts off as blue, makes its way towards green in the middle and finishes off at yellow. The blue to yellow progression is smooth all the way through, and blends well in the middle of the fish, proving this as a good example.


This Blue Macaw is a good example of tint progression because the feathers that start at the beak are a grayish blue which fades out of the birds head into a more solid blue. Depending on how the light hits the birds feathers is how blue they will look, hence the feathers towards the bead are a faded grayish blue, and the birds body is more of a vibrant blue.


This photo of a Wolverine is a good example of shade progression because the light brown of its furn fades into dark brown fur and then darkens into back near its face.  Showing a shade progressing that goes from color to black.

Color Interaction: Phase 1


Tropical Fish

While learning about color perception I learned that there are many different ways our eyes perceive color. We all see color color differently and we also perceive color differently because of the way they are placed together,mixed, their saturation, and even the amount of light that reflects off of it. I chose a tropical fish and a bluejay to show different and beautiful ways color can interact with each other in nature because how unique it can be.

Satellite -Guster

Satellite by Guster, has like a very soothing and flowing melody. Thats why most of what i sketched is curvy. The lines that are repeated the most are the beats that were most familiar to me. There were some lines that were not curvy at all and that was towards the middle of the song, where i heard this one single beat that stuck out to me.

I tried my best too just feel the music and go with its flow. The artist is describing a girl as a work of art. She’s his “satellite”. On the final product of my sketch I’ve realized that it looks like the sky. which relates to what the artist is communicating, the girl is his all. She’s always the first star that he finds. It’s a love song. The soothing and flowing melody makes you fell and understand his drive towards her.
