In this assignment, you will create 3 types of color pallettes and implement these in collages that apply Contrast of Proportion.
The palette for each collage must be one of the following types of color combinations (memorize these!)
Monochromatic: Colors that are shade or tint variations of the same hue.
Analogous: Colors located adjacent to each other on a color wheel.
Complementary Colors across from each other on a color wheel.
Not as common, but important to know:
Split-Complementary: One hue plus two others equally spaced from its complement.
Double-Complementary: Two complementary color sets; the distance between selected complementary pairs will effect the overall contrast of the final composition.
Triad: Three hues equally positioned on a color wheel.
Contrast of Proportion
When colors are juxtaposed, our eyes perceive a visual mix. This mix will differ depending on the proportions of allocated areas.
- The color with the largest proportional area is the dominant color (the ground).
- Smaller areas are subdominant colors.
- Accent colors are those with a small relative area, but offer a contrast because of a variation in hue, intensity, or saturation (the figure).
Create three collages that exhibit contrast of proportion. Use found paper based on the palettes you created in-class. Compositions should be abstract, and incorporate the principles learned last semester.
1) Create palettes for your homework, 3 total.
