color wheel
viewfinder stencil

Learn to see color schemes in images. You are going to look for analogous and monochromaric color scheems, find dominant colors and arrange the images in a color wheel. Each image will represent one of the 12 colors

You can use a printed color wheel to match the colors.

There are 12 colors you are going to look for:

  • Primary: red, blue, yellow
  • Secondary: purple, green, orange
  • Intermediate: red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green, yellow-green, red-orange, yellow-orange

Search for images in old magazines, use the stencil (viewfinder) to cutout the parts of the images to represent each of the above colors.

Arrange them in a circle on the poster board:

  • Poster board 20" x 15"
  • Color wheel size 12" x 12" (inner circle 7" x 7")

 

You can have multiple elements for the same color. Lay them all out. Pick your best options.
