COLOR THEORY and NON-OBJECTIVE COMPOSITION
This project will use the application of color theory combined with the elements and techniques presented in this class to create non-objective compositions.
- Bristol Board/ Matte Board/ Illustration Board
- Black and colored Markers
- Paint (primary colors with black and white only)
- Razor knife or scissors
Using the provided format create a color wheel with paint that displays knowledge of mixing the primary colors to create secondary and tertiary colors. This preliminary study should also include tints, shades, and dulled intensities as described in the attached color wheel format/explanation. Note: this preliminary study must be done with paint.
Create 3 non-objective compositions that are 10”X10” with paint, markers, or both that have the following attributes:
Composition #1 -complimentary colors with tints and shades
Composition #2 -analogous colors with a warm tone
Composition #3 -analogous colors with a cool tone
All compositions must use the following elements from the previous projects:
-use of radial, symmetric, and asymmetric compositions
-use of line variants
-use of texture
-use of value and color variation
-use of tessellated pattern
Note: All hues within any composition must not blend or fade and must be separated by a black line.
-The preliminary study and all 3 designs should be presented in the designated size formats.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS:
-Resolve the composition with pencil first before using markers or paint.
-If you intend to use paint, execute your project on illustration board
-Adhere to all ideas and techniques presented in class for good craftsmanship
