Colours

Recommended Posts

Guest Ferdie

Hey guys (and girls),

 

what literature, webpages or exercises can you recommend to improve skills reg. colours?

 

In my eyes, haven´t had sufficient training on that subject in my university years. Surely can evaluate if a variety of colour works with each other, but only by training and not by knowledge. Any recommendations appreciated!

Color sense or taste in selection of color is a common problem for designers. Most people agree that when it comes to color sense, it is basically innate in them, but then again experience is also a great factor to develop this ability. Basically what you need to focus on in colors are base, materials and shading. The base color is the main theme or color scheme while shading is just a component to give depth to the whole object. Materials ofcourse defines your object. The knowledge and practice of using complementary colors, triad and tetrad combinations will also help you to somehow "feel right" about your color selections... though honestly it is still your "eye" for the color that makes your taste effective or not.
