Color Wheel and Value Scale

Project Overview:

This project will allow you practice in the art of pigment mixing by creating a traditional color wheel - 12 step achromatic value scale, and a 10 step tint and shade scale using your acrylic paints.  This assignment will be done on your Bristol Board Vellum - finished size 11x14in.

 

Color wheel:

Make the outer circle of your wheel or desired shape about 7 to 8 inches in diameter. This will serve as just a guide for you as you determine how you want to assemble your color wheel. Your wheel should be divided into 12 equal sections. The primary, secondary, and tertiary color positions should match the diagram in your book or color wheel. Whatever shapes you choose to use for your wheel, it will be helpful to paint your colors on a separate piece of Bristol board and then cut the shapes out, then adhere to the illustration board for your final color wheel.
