Colour Studies 2012, Unit 2

The goals for this unit of study were:

  • to explore the impact of various contrasts:
    • contrast of extension, warm/cool, tonal, theoretical relationships of colour to shape

My experiences while completing the assignments:

  • Again, the lack of control in drawing on the Playbook tablet forced me to complete some drawing aspects (the round-cornered squares and triangles of the secondary colour-forms) on my PC, using Photoshop.
  • For colour selection, a few different tablet paint programs were employed, according to the abilities of the colour picker in each versus the requirements of the assignment: one program’s colour picker made it easier to find less saturated colours, while another allowed me to more easily select a warm or cool variation of a colour.
