"12-Part Color Wheel"
Plan your drawing in pencil so that it will be
big on the page. OK to use object shapes - Shapes with a related
theme work best!
Make it decorative! Embellish the page!
- Create an interesting shape to repeat and fill with *primary
- Create another shape to repeat and fill with **secondary
- Create a third shape to use for ***tertiary colors
- Label the color names (Notice that primaries and secondaries
have their own names, but tertiary color names are a double-name)
OK to make the lettering part of the design! Finish with an ink outline!
|Shading info: Let's assume
that things that are closest to us will get more light, and appear lighter,
and that things further away from us receive less light, and are therefore
darker. As we look at the bands you have drawn, bands passing under others
seem far away from us, and bands on top seem near. To emphasize this, shade
each band darker when it goes under another, and lighter where it passes
above. (Layer combinations of colors to achieve best darks!)|
