06b: Subtraction of Color

Hello everyone,

Please post the subtraction of color portion of our module six assignment below. The module can be found online at https://coloranddesign.community.uaf.edu/06-reverse-ground-theory-color-subtraction/.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Both of these projects look simple at first glance, but it can really be quite a challenge to get the exact color combinations right to get the optical effects to happen successfully.

Thank you!

05b. Museum/Art Gallery Visit

Hello everyone,

Please post your photo of an analogous or contemporary painting from a recent museum or art gallery visit below. Please include the following information:

  1. Title of artwork.
  2. Artist’s name.
  3. Location viewed at.
  4. Why the piece an example of either analogous or complementary color harmony.
  5. Why you chose the piece. (What drew you to it.)

05. Analogous/Complementary Painting Challenge

Good evening! This week’s module was made public last night and can now be viewed at https://coloranddesign.community.uaf.edu/05-analogous-complementary-painting-challenge/.

Please note that this module has two submission components:

  1. Please post your color harmony of choice painting below as a comment on this post.
  2. Please also visit a local gallery or museum to upload an artwork you viewed as well. Those artworks from your gallery visits will be added to a different post thread to help avoid confusion about what is student work and what is from your site visit.
