Welcome to Class !!

We are eager to have you join us !!

In today’s Computer Science class, We will be discussing Colour Theory and Its Application. We hope you enjoy the class!



Colour Theory and Its Application

Colour wheel: it is otherwise known as a colour circle, is the basic tool to aid effective combination of colours. The first circular colour diagram was designed by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666. The colour wheel is designed as a foundational virtual guide to colour selection. Over the years, many variations of the basic design of the colour wheel have been made, but the most common version is a wheel of twelve colours based on the ROYGBIV subtractive colour mode.

Colour scheme

Colour scheme or colour relationships involves a set of methods used in exploring colour harmonies. It is an effective way for the artist to choose colours that relate in some way each other and look good to settle. Variety of colours in the relationship can be found in these seven colour scheme namely; monochrome, analogous, complementary, triad, tetrad, neutral and random.

Monochrome is a different shade of a single colour.

Analogous is a virtual relationship of colours that sit next to each other on the colour wheel.

Complimentary colour are two colours that sit directly opposite each other on the colour wheel

Triad: Triad relationship uses three colours and they are identified by pinning on the fourth colour on the colour wheel, thereby selecting them at approximately equal distance to and from one another
