Please post your reverse ground theory 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/.
Please let me know if you have any questions. It can be hard to describe these particular projects succinctly online.
I enjoyed this assignment. I fully understand the concept of using a background to pull color tones from another color. I used violet from a tube in order to have a consistent tone for the two center boxes. I guess I didn’t show much imagination by simply recreating the rectangles as shown in the example, but it was fun to put the concept into reality.
Your example came out well, the purple square on the left looks darker and more reddish than the one on the right. It’s wild how different background colors can do that!
The results of this assignment were pretty surprising to me. It worked better than I thought it would, considering we’re using acrylic paints and not software with exact hex values for colors. I started with painting the two foreground squares the same shade of medium blue, then taped everything off and painted a dark blue and a light blue background. I used primary blue and varying amounts of titanium white for this assignment. The hardest part was mixing enough of each background color to cover the whole 18×24 canvas. This assignment was fun, I got to witness reverse ground theory in action. Painting this principle reminds me of op art.
Great job! I also struggle with mixing enough paint then end up varying the tones due to a shortage. My latest self challenge has been to try and recreate the exact same color as my first mix. I’m not very good at it, but I try!
Very nicely done! good color choice, i think it is very successful.
All of my comments about the project can be found on google drive as well!
Nice, your pieces and illusions came out really well. I like how you did circles instead of squares, it’s the same effect and it’s cute too!
You ended up using three of my favorite colors (half my wardrobe is coral, periwinkle and ocean/deep teal) but I it didn’t occur to me to put them together for this project. I like the intensity and texture you used in your circles (both sets) as well.
I was amazed at how well this part of the project worked out. I stayed with shades of yellow/orange

Good job! The top square on the yellow background really reads darker than the one on the red square.
I think this assignment worked fairly well for me. I stuck with the pink & purple tones used in the example, though my shades are definitely different. The colors aren’t coming through exactly true-to-life in the photo, but I think the color in the center squares visually reads as two slightly different shades due to the background colors.
I like your purple tones, they’re relaxing. The illusion works on your painting, the square on the left looks darker on the light background. It’s tough to photograph this stuff without getting shadows and reflections from lights.
This looks great! Very well done
The reverse ground painting was kind of tricky to get right. I learned a lot while experimenting with the colors. For this one I used a light magenta and a pale green for my backgrounds and a more saturated green for my third color. I think the green in the small box should have been toned back a little more, it turned out a little too overpowering. I think the issue I ran into was that I started getting direct sunlight in my house when I was about halfway through painting. The change from artificial light to daylight really altered that way the colors appeared and threw off my color combinations.
For this assignment I used everything straight from the tube just for the sake of keeping everything consistent to pull off the illusion, the only thing I mixed was the pink in the butterfly.
I love the creativity you did with this drawling
This was tough. I am going to have play with this to explore more what this can do. I chose a yellow green for the small inside square, a mustardish yellow for one large square and a dark green for the other. I find this concept really fascinating and I had fun. I am interested in how this with be used for future assignments.
I know I could have achieved better lines here if I had been more careful and taken more time. I am, however, happy with how my painting does a good job of exemplifying this week’s lesson.
Even though this assignment seem easy it was kinda hard to do the middle because I had to mix a lot of white and even add a bit of orange. I hope I did this right.
I think it’s interesting how there is not only a shift in my perception of the color here, but one side is so vibrant and the other side more flat. I’ve noticed it in a few others too.
Somehow I had no tape in my whole house, so I embraced my rough circle shapes (after I showed my friend they suggested all too late that I couldve used any old straight edge). Unfortunately, I think this choice was my own demise. I think the reverse ground part was less successful than the subtraction. In the reverse, I see three colors, whereas in the subtraction, I see the illusion of three. Oh whale.
I had fun with this. I chose to use yellow ochre and ultramarine blue as my background colors and then mixed them together as a dark green for my middle swatch. I think it’s cool how it came out. I like it.
That’s a more striking difference than I expected. Well done!
I struggled with this one, I tried to use blue and green to make the teal foreground color shift in either of those directions. It ended up effecting the teal colors apparent brightness vary, which I would still say is a somewhat successful attempt.
I think it worked really well, and I like the fun silhouette you chose to use.
I was a little confused about the assignment but I think I did it right. The reverse ground theory assignment was pretty easy but I’m not sure it worked. I used the paint directly from the tubes to be sure I didn’t use a different shade of the color by mixing. I liked seeing how in the videos the colors did exactly as expected. It was hard to get the paint to do the same manually with brush and paper vs. a computer program.
Wow, the blue side looks so very vibrant. Very different from the more subtle, raspberry-like colors on the right.
Now that I see everyone’s squares, I think I was a little ambitious. I am still struggling with photographing my pieces, in person and six feet away, the sky looks darker and bluer and the sand looks lighter and greyer. In the photo, they look pretty flat and similar. Water is hard. So are clouds. I like my rocks, tho. This week I also bought some matte acrylic medium. Using that to dilute the paint made filling in the backgrounds of both of this week’s pieces so much more enjoyable. I did have to contend with the decreased opacity, so I need to either use it sparingly for upper layers, or do a lot of layering to reinforce the top layer color.
I agree everyone had very nice squares. I also struggled photographing my work so that it was accurate to what I was seeing. I don’t get good lighting in my room and flash warps the image. I think the waves did a good job of showing the variations since the shore seemed lighter to me for sure.
Yay! So glad you could see the shift. I was worried my eyes were letting me see it because I just wanted it to work. I think having the color surrounded really does make a difference. I’m glad I changed my approach for the second picture.
t first my purple was too dark and dried almost black, so there was no real discernible difference. I had to remix a lightened color to paint over the original and finally that worked, though the apparent difference is still subtle.
I decided to go with a warm toned yellow as my constant color. In order to make it appear more like a dark orange I used a lighter cool toned yellow and white in the background. On the opposite side I wanted a more cool toned yellow to appear so to combat the original orange color I used a reddish background. I’m pretty happy with how it came out.
I chose simple shapes for this assignment and I think it was successful. I think the color blocking was a good idea unlike what I did for 6b which wasn’t as successful. The pink on the red background looks darker than the pink on the peachy background.
I decided to do four instead of two because my first experiment did not work out the way I planned and I now realize it is because I made the two centers different to flip the background instead of keepng the two centers the same and reversing. I understand how different hues accent adjacents.
I used 3 different greens for the reverse ground assignment to create an effect where each green changes a bit where it is surrounded by another green. I think the colors i chose were a bit too close to each other to really pull it off well.
I have used some multiple colors for a task, Combination become so attractive and beautiful. I have used it in some wireless sublimation printer . This is just amazing.
Amazing I really appreciate your color choice.

Pest control refers to the management of pests, which are unwanted organisms that can cause damage to crops, buildings, or people’s health. There are various methods of pest control, including chemical, biological, and physical control. Chemical control involves the use of pesticides to kill pests, while biological control involves introducing natural enemies of the pests to control their population. Physical control methods include trapping, fencing, and other barriers to prevent pests from entering an area. Proper pest control is essential for maintaining a safe and healthy environment and minimizing damage to property and crops.
