Color Schemes







I used the color blue for my monochromatic color scheme. The monochromatic portrait utilizes value by having  light blue and dark blue areas all over the paper. this was achieved by adding black and white to the color blue to get these types of value.  I used the colors red, yellow and orange for the analogous color scheme. The colors give out a autumn feel towards the artwork due to the colors in the composition. For a complementary color scheme, I used the colors pink, green, and purple. I’m not entirely sure how this composition utilize simultaneous contrast and mixing complements.I think that most of the color uses were good on my part. the monochromatic color scheme is my favorite out of the three because it has a good use of blue throughout the composition. I thought the top of the artwork with the rectangles was unnecessary and it relay doesn’t fit well in the composition.
