Talky talky talky – words always come out of my mouth mangled. I wonder if I have a disconnect in my brain. BUT images stay there a long time. I try to connect an image with a word when I really need or want to remember it.
Here are some of the words used for color.
Hue – That is just another name for color; red, yellow, green, orange etc.…
Tint – Color +WHITE while pink is a color all it’s own it is a tint of red a lighter version.
Tone – Color +Black, I add black to my hand dyes to create what I call blackened colors.
This is my Blackened Rainbow gradation.
Key color – Dominant color in a color scheme or mixture
Neutral – Grey a combination of black and white, or any color that is non descript.
I like to call Frieda Green a neutral and I find it often works that way for me.
Intensity or Chroma – the brightness or dullness of a color
Rainbow Gradation are all bright colors, there are 14 bright full strength colors in this gradation.
Value – the lightness or darkness of a color
The values in Winter Sky go from black to light grey.
You can keep these words in your brain and associate the pictures I have provided.
Have a great weekend.
