Constellations / Vibrating Hue
(Vibrating hues vibrate (or Shimmer) along the edge of where the two colors meet)
Below are a few examples of colors that vibrate.
What makes these colors vibrate
is the relationship between the two colors.
Both colors are equal in value, equal in intensity, but opposite in hue. This combination will result in a vibrating (where the edges vibrate) relationship.
Below illustrates the concept for the next project.
Below are 2 examples of how you can apply the 4 values (also study the direction of the stripes)
Try another set of colors:
Below is a finished example of the project (notice how the over all form exhibits volume by applying a value change to each plane).
Below are structural constellations
designed by Joseph Albers.
Design your own Constellation and apply color "vibrating" theory stated above.
To begin your design, start with
the middle diagonal line.
From that point you may draw a vertical or an opposing directional line. But remember, what you do to one side you do to the other side.
copy at least two designs below so you have an understanding how to create your own.
Below are examples to develop / initiate ideas.
Vibrating Color Project
This project must use acrylic paint.
Incorporate a design using complementary
hues, and the possibilities are endless.
Below are examples from a period in Art History called Optical Art or OP ART.
Brigit Riley is a well known artist from that period.
Below the values transition from light to dark in both colors.
Below the colors are not opposite
hues, but the values are close and the design is complex.
The combination yields a moving image.
Below is an example of Brigit Riley's work.
More work of Brigit Riley. Study her design for future ideas.
