Color Wheel and Analysis

 

Color analysis books tell us of various undertones of our skin.

They mention for instance pink, blue, green, yellow, gold, peach, apricot, orange.

A truth with modifications, this is!

Undertones are not only pink, blue, peach, golden etc.

They are diffrent kinds of all those colors, even as undertones.

Each of these colors mentioned above have certain properties to them.

When you have discovered your undertones,

then you have to reveal its properties too!

You know of colors of clothes you are trying on in the fitting room – that they have

  1. a certain color temprature. a. cool. b. medium/neutral. c. warm.
  2. a certain color value from a. light b. medium. c. dark
  3. a certain intensity a.bright to clear b. medium c. soft and muted

All these traits are to be found in our skintone as well!

Choosing one undertone, maybe peach, we must decide its temprature, its value, and its intensity.

These are the diffrent choices possible for peach.

Color Temprature……..Color Value……………………..Color Intensity:

Cool-Medium-Warm………Light-Medium-Dark……………….Bright/Clear-Medium-Soft/Muted

To intensity also belong Bold to Faint colors!)

Possible traits of Peach undertones: There are 27 combinations possible

if you count with 3 possible color temps, 3 valor possibilities

and of intensities also 3 possibilites.

And this is only the beginning. You can choose to break up temprature/valor/intensity in even more pieces. For instance: Valor can be divided further: lightest light (fair) -light- medium light – dark! light —- light medium – medium – dark! medium —-light! dark medium dark , darkest dark.

Temprature can be very cold- quite cool – not so cool – tepid – lukewarm -warm-hot- scolding.

Intensities can go from faint -soft/muted—medium–clear-bold-bright 

You can do this if you wish – but don’t think it is necessary to pull things that far. If you are not a specialist. Or an artist who needs to be a professional color connosseur!
