Event Decor COLOR WHEEL HELP

Unread postby KristenSlemko » September 6th, 2017, 9:39 pm

Hey everyone, I am having some difficulty understanding how to complete the assignment for B2 in event décor

It is asking me a question that to me should only have 2 squares as its complementary meaning adjacent from one another, on complete opposite however it is 3 squares so I am just trying to get an understanding..

ex. sally wants to have a graduation party, and has decided to use royal blue.. she is stuck on the other colors, fill in the boxes to best ability

however first one is complementary pairing
than there are 3 boxes.. I thought there should have been two ...

royal blue and orange.... but with a 3rd I'm not understanding which color or how to be able to tell which I should use am I supposed to go with a tint.. so royal blue, orange and a cream color ?

if someone could please explain it a little better for me I would really appreciate it!

I am having a little bit of the same confusion. The reading section on colors does state that normally for a color scheme you would want three colors minimum. So I am just trying to work with split complementary colors for that question. Although, I am struggling a little bit with it myself. I would love to here what other peoples thoughts are. .

I am on B2 as well. It is definitely a struggle because the assignment is not as clear as it should be

I also took it to mean your two main colours and a base colour which is the same for all the answers. I chose royal blue, orange and cream for this particular one :)

I thought the same thing, when I went back into the reading I was thinking maybe the third box was for the base color. My confusion on this assignment now is what do they want us to type underneath the boxes where it say [type short write-up here]? Are we supposed to put why we chose orange or is there something else we are supposed to type?

Is it just me or is the book "Color" wrong, it keeps saying that Green is the complimentary color of orange but according to the color wheel I have the one that is directly across from it is Blue..

I am stuck on the same question atm and I see above it's said that it's Violet, Red and Orange. The Orange I understand but I dont get the other two?

Hi Everyone,

I'm having the same problem with this...I think i get the colour wheel then i think no i don't lol!!

Regarding the boxes it seems to have one to many, is that for the main colour that we are required to work with?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Charlie

Hi all,

So, from my understanding the you are supposed to put different colors together using different techniques. The first color royal blue is the primary color, then your select complimentary colors, and then a base color. For A. With Sally, I paired royal blue with orange and white. I used the description of the colors in the book to fill in my description. For example, I wrote that I paired these colors because the book says that orange represents excitement. That's a good color to have at a graduation party, because it'll keep the mood upbeat, which encourages dancing and fun. White ties royal blue and orange together and makes them appear brighter.

You got to get creative too. Try not use the same colors. Like the royal blue instead of me using orange as the complementary color to blue I did green,royal blue, purple and gold for a madi gras feel. I explain why I did and a picture to show where I get my inspiration from. Another example #2 the black linens I use burgundy twice then switch to pink. For the rest of the assignment I use different hues of a color too. Like light blue and dark blue together. I pull picture off the internet for inspiration and put it with the assignment. I try to keep in mind not to have so many dark colors too. As well as knowing the main color and the base help a lot.

I am having massive issues with the colour wheel.
The wheel itself is currently in storage in another state and not accessible. But when you use the colour wheel in the course material it doesn't actually match what is being discussed. For instance either side of yellow in the course material is green and orange not blue violet and red violet like stated in complementary colours.
