The human eye distinguishes colors using light sensitive cells in the retina. These sensors are rods and cones. The rods give us our night vision.

Instead of being based on a hue, a grayscale color scheme is created by mixing of various shades of black, gray, and white. Analogous color scheme Analogous color schemes involve two or more colors that sit directly beside each other on the color wheel.

It is interesting to note that an analogous color scheme can involve several different hues and is not limited to a specific number.

Color theory

However, in order to be considered analogous, the color scheme must have a minimum of two hues and all must be connected on the color wheel. Complimentary color scheme Complimentary color schemes, similar to analogous, employ a minimum of two base hues.

However, in complimentary color schemes the base hues sit directly opposite each other on the color wheel. Triadic color scheme Triadic color schemes are slightly more complicated, involving three completely separate hues.

Triadic color schemes involve three hues evenly spaced from each other on the color wheel. It is interesting to note that all three hues will be of the same color type, primary, secondary, or tertiary.

Split Complimentary color scheme Split complimentary color schemes also involve three separate hues. As illustrated on the attached color theory poster, the method of creating the chosen colors is dependent on the media through which the project is completed.

Digitally, we are able to create color using light in an RGB additive system. In RGB additive, one begins with black and adds light and color, with the added color creating a lighter result as one progresses towards white.

In CMYK subtractive, one begins with white and adds ink or paint to create a darker surface. As color is added, the result becomes darker and tends towards deep shades, ending in black.

A neural substrate for unique hues has also eluded investigators. This indicates a high-dimensional neural substrate for color percepts, far beyond the two dimensions of Hering's color-opponent mechanisms.

Stoughton and Conway made a case for an overrepresentation of cells tuned to the unique hues in posterior inferior temporal cortex, but this inference was challenged by Mollon In spite of these psychophysical and physiological caveats, unique hues remain extremely useful in psychophysical tasks.

Experiment 1: Relative salience of complementary hues In an attempt to resolve the paradox, we explored whether a search task could reveal a privileged status for unique hues at a higher yet prelinguistic perceptual level.


We used a chromatic analog of the search-based subitizing task used by Komban, Alonso, and Zaidi to show that dark targets are more salient than light targets when presented on equally dark and light binary-noise backgrounds: observers' response times RTs were significantly shorter and accuracy higher for detecting the number of dark than light targets. By pitting observers' unique hues against their complementary colors, we compared the salience of unique hues to nonunique colors.

The unique hues were selected by navigating a gradated patch of hues forming a circle around neutral white, in the isoluminant plane of cardinal color space Derrington et al.

With respect to neutral white, unique red was not found to be the complementary of unique green nor unique yellow the complementary of unique blue , so we paired each observer's four unique hues with their complementary hues from across the color circle. Each color pair was thus equated for cone contrast from neutral white.

In addition to the four axes created using unique hues, two pairs were formed from the extrema of the cone-opponent cardinal axes S and L—M ; these were the same for all observers. Figure 1 shows the polar coordinates of unique-hue choices for each observer in the isoluminant color plane formed by the cardinal axes.The bluish shade of ultramarine violet PV15 he recommends made by M.

Colors that are opposite one another in the chromatic circle are called complementary. The trunk vertical axis serves as a scale for neutral gray tones, black being at the bottom, white at the top.

Nothing more than patient. Warm colors appear to advance toward its viewer as well as excite and cause a sense of aggression.
