Painting Tips: Basic Color Theory : Understanding Complimentary Colors


Hi! I’m Sue Rose with Expert Village and today
we are going to talk about using color in your paintings. The book that I consider my
bible of painting is this Itten’s book, The Elements of Color and you can see a picture
of the color wheel. I spent many years in school when I was getting my degree doing
little squares of color like this because color can set the mood or the feeling can
be warm or cool. Today we are going to start with the very basic elements of color which
are your primary and secondary colors. Stay tuned for that segment on your primary and
secondary colors.
