Comparison of Portraits
Areas of Most Improvement
Color Theory was a very prominent aspect of my art class this semester. It was used in every project of second semester, so naturally I became very familiar with it. I learned a lot about analogous colors, especially. Analogous colors are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. These colors can be blended and will still form colors that are pleasing to the eye. For example red and purple can be blended to form a red violet, as seen in my linoleum print above. Analogous colors looks good together and form pretty colors when blended. Complimentary colors on the other hand do not blend in equal amounts. They can be added to one another in minuscule amounts to create a tone, so that a color keeps its intensity. However, if blended together in equal amounts they will form unappealing colors. Although they do not mix, complimentary colors compliment each other nicely as seen in my second linoleum print above.
