Color Final Exam

2D Color-MU

At spectrum intensity a blue-violet is Dark in Value
Analogous colors May help create color harmony
White is the result of overlapping projected rays of the additive color primaries. The additive color primaries include red, blue, and Green
In color mixing theory, blue plus green minus yellow plus red equals Blue-violet
When several contrasting colors are used together, they will look unified if All are somewhat neutralized
Mixing a common hue in each color used in painting will produce Related or "key color" and a harmony of color tonality
Analogous color Are adjacent in the spectrum
is a result of color absorbing all wavelengths except the color experienced; is an example of subtractive color Color viewed by reflecting light
Hues directly opposite each other on the color wheel are known as Complementary
All colors have the physical properties of Hue, Value, Intensity
Color as seen in the objective world (green leaves, blue water, white clouds, etc.) Local color
To make a yellow-green appear "greener", it must be surrounded by Yellow
The color is said to be neutralized; The intensity of that color is lowered; The resulting color becomes a tertiary color; A change in value occurs Color mixed with a complement
red theater spotlight makes white objects assume the color of the light; the artist may be dealing with color as seen on computer or television monitors When additive color is used
art that conforms to establish traditions and approve conventions as practice in formal art schools; stresses standards, set procedures and rules Academic
Relating to color perceived only in terms of neutral grays from light to dark without hue Achromatic
Color created by superimposing light rays Additive Colors
Colors that are closely related in hue; they are usually adjacent to each other on the color wheel Analogous Colors
Pertaining to the presence of color Chromatic
The relative degree of lightness or darkness demonstrated by a given color Chromatic Value
The visual response to different wavelengths of sunlight identified as red, green, blue, and so on; having the physical properties of hue, intensity, and value Color
Four colors, equally spaced on the color wheel, containing a primary and its complement and a complementary pair of intermediates; any organization of color on the wheel forming a rectangle that could include a double split-complement Color Tetrad
three colors, equally spaced on the color wheel, forming an equilateral triangle Color Triad
Two colors directly opposite each other on the color wheel Complementary Colors
Any color that has a value level of middle gray or lighter High-key Color
Generic name of a color; also designates a color's position in the spectrum or on the color wheel; it is determined by the specific wavelength of the color in a ray of light Hue
The saturation, strength, or purity of a hue. A vivid color is of high; a dull color is of low Intensity
A color produced by a mixture of a primary color and a secondary color Intermediate Color
The color as seen in the objective world (green grass, blue sky, red barn, etc.) Local (objective) Color
Any color that has a value level of middle gray or darker Low-key Color
Having only one hue; may include the complete range of value (of one hue) from white to black Monochromatic
Color that has been grayed or reduced in intensity by being mixed with any of the neutrals or with a complementary color (so that the mixture contains all three primaries, in equal or unequal amounts). Neutralized (color)
No single color is noticed-only a sense of light and dark or the range from white through gray to black Neutrals
A color substance that gives its color property to another material by being mixed with it or covering it; they are different from dyes Pigment
A preliminary hue that cannot be broken down or reduced into component colors; they are the basic hues of any color system that in theory may be used to mix all other colors Primary Color
The three primary colors on the color wheel (red, yellow, and blue) which are equally spaced and form an equilateral triangle Primary Triad
A color produced by a mixture of two primary colors Secondary Color
The three secondary colors on the color wheel (orange, green, and violet), which are equally spaced and for an equilateral triangle Secondary Triad
A color produced by mixing black with a hue, which lowers the value level and decreases the quantity of light reflected Shade
When two different colors come into direct contact, the contrast intensifies the difference between them Simultaneous Contrast
The band of individual colors that results when a beam of white light is broken into its component wavelengths, identifiable as hues Spectrum
A color and the two colors on either side of its complement Split-complement
That which is derived from the mind, instead of physical reality, and reflects a person bias emotion, or interpretation Subjective Color
The sensation of color that is produced when wavelengths of light are reflected back to the viewer after all other wavelengths have been subtracted and/or absorbed Subtractive Color
Color resulting from the mixture of all three primaries, two secondary colors, or complementary intermediates; are characterized by the neutralization of intensity and hue Tertiary Color
A color produced by mixing white with a hue, which raises the value level and increases the quantity of light reflected Tint
A generic term for the quality of a color, often indicating a slight modification in hue, value, or intensity Tone
The relative degree of lightness or darkness; the characteristic of color determined by its lightness or darkness or the quantity of light reflected by color Value
The arrangement or organization of values that control compositional movement and creates a unifying effect throughout a work of art Value Pattern
