Color Wheel & Palettes
These designs will come to life with any assortment of colors. Try using your Color Wheel to create professional results! Se below for some pre-made color palette samples you can use to color your designs!
Colors that are opposite of each other on the Color Wheel (i.e.: Blue and Orange) are known as Complimentary Colors. These colors look great when used together in artwork. The example below demonstrates the use of Complimentary colors to make patterns stand out.
Colors that lie next to each other on the Color Wheel, (i.e.: Blue and Blue Green) are known as Analogous Colors. These colors can create a wide range of value when used together in artwork. For example, the image below shows the elephant's ear colored with Blue Violet to Blue Green. This creates a steady transition from the top of the ear to the bottom while still tying the entire shape together.
See below for some starter techniques to your Elegant Elephant.
