ID Test 2 Notes Test 2 covers: Chapters 10, 11, 13, 14 Chapter 10 – Color That color may have a mystical allusion, may be readily surmised, for since every diagram in which variety of color may be represented points to those primordial relations which belong both to nature and the organ of vision, there can be no doubt that these may be used of as a language. –Goethe Basic principles and concepts to be covered: Additive and subtractive color Color systems Munsell, natural color system, RGB and CYMK, Pantone Color harmonies Color psychologies Color effects Color and light are often the first things we think of when we remember to invision space and place For many, they are the most powerful elements in space, defining meaning, time, and sense of place Color affects visual properties of objects or space, and has a psychological and behavioral impact It impacts what we believe and how we feel about our environments Color and light are virtually inseparable, thus additive and subtractive color Additive and subtractive color – two ways color is created Additive color We see color because of light White is the combination of all colored light Subtractive color Refers to pigment color, not light

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
