Self-analysis

Color is an important visual element in the fields of fine art and design, and the color wheel–a circular diagram of the spectrum used to show the relationships between the colors–is a critical tool for understanding and applying color in a work of art.

For this project you are going to recreate the traditional color wheel using found objects, or things you find from around the home, office, yard, etc.

Your goal is to have your constructed “found object” color wheel of various items match the colors on the color wheel.
– Take a good, well-lit photo of your project and submit it here.– Photographing outside in a shaded spot often gives the best, most even, light.– Submit it as a jpeg or in a Word document. No other file types are allowed.– You must have at least one object for each color on the wheel, but may have more to express variations between the colors to each side.– Arrange your color wheel according the traditional color wheel (see image below). Put YELLOW/ORANGE items at the top of your color wheel
 
Below you will find a series of images.

The first is the traditional color wheel—we are only focused on the outer ring, where the actual colors are named: Yellow, Yellow-Green, Green, Blue-Green, Blue, Blue-Violet, Violet, Red-Violet, Red, Red-Orange, Orange, Yellow-Orange. These are the colors you are going to match with your found objects.

The remaining images are examples of “found object” color wheels.Parameters (10 points each, 30 total)
