The element of colour booklet

Here you can download a booklet with most of the concepts we have studied in class

Guidelines to create the Colour theory scheme or outline

To do an outline or a scheme you have to organize concepts in general ideas. And then develop them, adding definitions and examples or diagrams.
 The general idea that involves all concepts is COLOUR THEORY, and you can place it as a Heading.
Then use a key system organizing everything in main ideas (ideas principales)

What is an outline?

Concepts you must include in the Colour theory outline:

Main ideas:
  • What is colour? Why we see it ? Physics (spectrum, white light), chemestry (pigments) and biological aspects.
  • Mixing systems (aditive (lights)  versus subtractive (paints) colour mixing) Better with visual diagrams. 
  • Qualities or properties of colour (Hue, value (Tints, shades and tones), saturation)
  • Ways to organize colours through history.  Aristhotheles, newton, munsell.The colour wheel
  • Complementary colour pairs.
  • Thermal ranges (Cool and warm palettes)
  • Understanding colour- What is it used for?
  • Colour harmonies- 6 Types. How should we use them?
You should add visual diagrams and colours in your outline, to do it more visual and attractive.
Remember that in the subtractive colour wheel the primary colour is magenta.( Not red.)
