Note: The following photos were all found on Pinterest!
I do not know the original sources nor the photographers.
I am truly grateful to have such amazing
resources so readily available.
This post would not be possible without them.
Bold, Bright, Yummy, Tasty COLOR!
These are made by combining two primary colors:
(blue and yellow)
(blue and red)
(red and yellow)
TERTIARY(another name for third-ary)COLORS
These colors are made by mixing equal amounts
of a primary and a secondary color:
These are colors that are OPPOSITE each other on the color wheel.
Using these colors in close proximity
to each other is VERY HIGH ENERGY!
Use complimentary colors in equal
amounts for a bold statement.
Red Violet/Yellow Green,
Blue Green/Red Orange,
etc., etc, etc.
Dramatic color in large amounts can be TOO MUCH stimulation
for many people - especially for extended periods of time.
Pulling this look off successfully in clothing or
home decor takes some practice! When done well, it is AMAZING!
These are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.
Red, Red Orange, Orange
Yellow, yellow Green, Green
Red, Red Violet, Violet
Analogous colors are naturally harmonious.
They can be used in any amounts and they will work.
While it is still a bold look, achieving a harmonious look with analogous colors is easier than it is with complementary colors.
So far, we've looked at pure, saturated color. These colors all work well together. Mixing a full palette of color-wheel colors will be successful. It is too strong for most people, however.
Begin to pull color wheel-colored items together to make groupings. Try all the colors in a variety of combinations.
It doesn't matter what the items are or how successful the composition is, we're just looking at color relationships.
Be sure the colors touch each other.
Take photos of the colors that make you happy or excite you.
Notice how some colors are light and some are dark.
We'll look at chromatic grays.
We'll learn about simultaneous contrast.
We'll see more examples of successful color schemes.
We'll talk about successful WHITE spaces.
Meanwhile, notice your environment. See if you can spot complementary and analogous color combinations.
Word for the Day:
Exodus 25:1-7 Offerings for the Tabernacle
1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 “Tell the Israelites to bring me an
offering. You are to receive the offering for me from each man

are to receive from them: gold, silver and bronze; 4 blue, purple
and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair; 5 ram skins dyed red
and hides of sea cows; acacia wood; 6 olive oil for the light;
spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; 7 and
onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and
