Using Color in Landscape Design

  1. 1. USING COLOR IN LANDSCAPE DESIGN ERIC STORMER
  2. 2. COLOR ATTRIBUTES
  3. 3. CHROMATIC COLORS HUE
  4. 4. • “Hue” is a term used to answer the question, “What color is that?” • Hue refers to the location of the color on the electromagnetic spectrum. • Hue, as a quality of color, is considered important because of the emotional content it is symbolically associated with. • Hue is affected by the environment and its surroundings.
  5. 5. ADDITIVE & SUBTRACTIVE
  6. 6. HUE CONTRAST • Contrast: the perception of differences between two or more effects. • Hue Contrast affects unity and balance of a composition. • High hue contrast levels are often exciting. • Low hue contrast levels can be soothing and restful, but to little can be boring, dull.
  7. 7. HIGH HUE CONTRAST
  8. 8. LOW HUE CONTRAST
  9. 9. V A L U E
  10. 10. VALUE • Value: describes the light or dark quality of a color, determined by the amount of light the object reflects. • White reflects almost all light, so it has the highest value, and is lightest. • Black reflects almost no light, so it has the darkest value and is darkest.
  11. 11. VALUE CONTRAST
  12. 12. SATURATION • Also referred to as a hues intensity, brilliance, purity or chroma • Is a measure of the strength, or color content, of a hue • Pure hues are the more saturated, while hues with gray, black or white are less saturated.
  13. 13. ACHROMATIC COLORS
  14. 14. ACHROMATIC COLOR WHITE
  15. 15. ACHROMATIC COLOR - BLACK
  16. 16. ACHROMATIC COLOR GRAY
  17. 17. PASTELS • Possess both high value and comparatively high saturation • Reflect a great deal of light, therefore draw the eye • Can wash out in bright sunlight
  18. 18. PASTELS
  19. 19. PALE COLORS • Possess high value and low saturation • Most appropriately used as background and connecting colors • As with pastels, difficult to use in bright sunlight • Useful in creating compositions of varying value
  20. 20. VIVID COLORS • Possess high saturation at their natural levels; each color has a unique saturation • Usually noticed first in any setting • Work well when viewed at a distance • Work well as accent containers • As with all colors, will appear gray at a distance
  21. 21. RICH COLORS • Possess low value and high saturation • Show best close up • Excellent foil to light colored backdrops • May be mixed easily; dark value provides strong sense of unity
  22. 22. MUTED COLORS • Possess low saturation and medium value • Are more gray than other colors • Are darker than pale colors (high vs. medium value) • May be used alone, or as a contrast to brightly colored foliage and flowers • Their value makes them appear closer and larger than dark colors, smaller and more distant than light colors
