  3. History of Color • Colors are often symbolic. • Let’s talk about what role color has played in different times in history.

  8. In the Rococo period… • Tastes became very feminine, colors became less vibrant.

  9. In 18th Century England… • There was great elegance. Colors were rich, showing a strong Chinese influence in the use of red and gold.

  10. During the Victorian era… • There was great Eclecticism known for it’s abundance of “things”. • Colors were mostly dull reds, greens, browns, and mauves.

  11. In the Early 20th Century… • Colors were Monochromatic. There were sleek surfaces and strong contrasts with black, gray, silver, brown, beige and white.

  12. In the 1920’s… • All-white interiors became popular which gave way to delicate pastels with bright accents.

  13. In the 1950’s.. • Light colors were preferred. • However, American interest turned to Mexico and a shift to bright colors with bright contrasts.

  14. And in the 1990’s… • Regal gold, blue, and red were used. Southwestern remained popular and Victorian was being revived. • Ivy league also becomes popular with forest greens and cranberry reds.

  15. Where does color come from? • A ray of light is the source of all color. • Without light, color does not exist. • Light is broken down into colors of the spectrum. You can often see a variety of colors in a bright beam when you look at something like a rainbow.

  16. Color • Color can alter the appearance of form and space. • Color can affect our performance abilities and change our moods.

  17. Pigments • Pigments are substances that can be ground into fine powder and used for adding color to dyes and paints. • Pigments were originally derives from animal, mineral, and vegetable sources. • Examples: • Purple from shellfish • Red dye from the dried bodies of scale insects • To create our own color wheel, we will be mixing different pigments together to create all the colors in the color wheel.

  18. The Color Wheel • The color wheel is a basic tool we use when working with colors. • It is based on the standard color theory known as Brewster/Prang. • In addition to the traditional color wheel, there are two color systems that are useful when more detailed colors are required. • The Munsell system: • Has 5 principles hues and 5 intermediate hues. A numbering system helps designers identify the exact hue they need. • The Ostwald system: • Made from pairs of complementary colors. The color circle has twenty-four hues.

  19. The Color Wheel • There are 12 hues in the spectrum of color. • They are divided into three categories…

  20. The Primary Colors • Red, Yellow, and Blue • These colors cannot be combined from mixing any colors together.

  21. The Secondary Colors • Green, violet, and orange • Made by combining the Primary colors together.

  22. The Tertiary Colors • Yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, red-orange, yellow-orange. • Made by combining a primary and a secondary hue. • Named by the Primary color first.
