Ittens’s Colour Contrast

7 Apr

Johannes Itten was one of the first people to define and identify strategies for suc­cessful colour combinations. Through his research he de­vised seven methodologies for coordinating colours uti­lizing the hue’s contrasting properties. These contrasts add other variations with re­spect to the intensity of the respective hues; i.e. may be obtained due to light, moderate, or dark value.

Simultaneous Contrast - Gouache

Contrasts of Complements - Gouache

Contrast of Saturation - Gouache

Contrast of Extension - Gouache

Contrast of Warm and Cool - Gouache

Contrast of Hue - Gouache
