House Painting, Colors & The Color Wheel

 

House Painting, Colors & The Color Wheel
The color wheel is the basis for all color reference
By understanding the arrangement AND the terminology,you can get off on the right foot when choosing color combinations for house painting.
Describing Color:
Hue - Described as being in the same color family.
Value - Relative lightness or darkness of a color depending on a neighboring color.
Intensity - The degree of color.
Primary colors are the pigment colors that all of the other colors are made from. These colors are blue, red, and yellow.
Secondary colors are two primary colors mixed together.
Tertiary colors are a primary color and a secondary color mixed together.
Color Families are groups of colors that are made from the same colors.
Neutral Colors are gray , white, and black, that contain no other identifiable colors.
Monochromatic colors on the wheel are one basic color (hue), but have different values (lightness (tints) or darkness (shades)).
Adjacent colors combine two or more colors located next to each other.
Complementary colors are opposite each other. Red and green are complements, as are yellow-orange and blue-violet. Use a subtle color and a dominate color to avoid clashing.
Triad colors are three colors that are used together, with one being the dominant color and the others being accent colors.
A four-color combination of equidistant colors, such as green, red, yellow-orange and blue-violet, is known as a "tetrad."
Before the house painting starts in earnest, a trip to your local paint store will be a big help in selecting your colors. The color systems today are arranged so that all the working colors are grouped making it a lot easier to choose your color schemes.
