Tues. Apr. 14 COLOR STUDIES
Rose Antaki's drawing (top) beautifully illustrates the use of warm and cool color combinations. Warm and cool colors work very much like light and dark values in that warm colors tend to advance and cool colors recede. Therefore, cool colors are generally placed in the shadows or receding planes.
Mario Mora's drawing (bottom) illustrates the use of complementary colors; orange and blue in this case. Complementary colors are situated directly across from one another on the color wheel. Although his drawing is unfinished, you can still see how complementary colors can enhance each other.
