Color Concepts

( 01:00:48 )

Stephen Quiller is an acclaimed water media artist and teacher who strongly emphasizes the importance of a knowledge of color. In this video, Mr. Quiller first explains the color wheel and relates it to the Quiller Wheel which indicates colors using the actual names of commercial pigments the artist purchases. He then describes with painting demonstrations, charts, and completed paintings five color schemes: monochromatic, complementary, analogous, split complementary, and triad. He also explains hue, value, and intensity relationships as well as dominant and subordinant color in a painting.
