Outdoor landscape images often include a variety of objects such as rocks, shrubs, and trees, as well as water, sky and clouds. For the artist, the challenge is in selecting the right colors for the objects and in rendering the objects themselves to create a realistic scene. To do this, the artist must view the scene from an overall perspective and be selective about the color choices that appear in different parts of the scene. Also, the artist must select the appropriate colors to represent the background to better distinguish the objects in the foreground from the background in the image.
Artists use a variety of techniques to simulate natural colors. These techniques include painting with color, painting in color areas, colorization using a limited color palette, and using watercolor paint. A color palette is a collection of colors used to make up an image. With a color palette, the artist selects colors from the palette to create the colors used to make up the image. For example, if the artist wants to paint a scene using only red and green inks, the artist has a choice of creating the colors on a color palette that includes only red and green inks or creating the colors on a palette that includes blue, yellow and purple inks. The problem with using a color palette is that it is often difficult for the artist to judge if a chosen color on a palette will create a color that will appear in the desired location in the scene. In some cases, the colors on a palette may be close to the desired colors, but not exactly the colors that the artist wants to use. For example, using only green and red inks to paint a scene on a palette that includes red, blue and yellow inks, the artist may select a green color close to the red color that is needed for the painting, but the artist may or may not be able to actually select a green color that will appear in the same place in the painting as the actual color. If a color close to the color is used, the color may blend into the color in a location where it should not blend. This makes it difficult for the artist to judge which colors on the palette are going to create the colors needed to paint a desired location in the scene. A similar problem occurs if a palette is not included on the color chart. For example, an artist may not know the correct colors that will create the colors needed to paint a scene. It would be desirable to provide a color chart that would help an artist determine what colors are needed to create a desired color that is likely to appear in a desired location in the scene.
It is known to provide a color guide that includes an index of colors. These color guides are sometimes known as color harmony charts or color wheel charts. One such color guide includes a color wheel in which colors are located in different positions on the color wheel. For example, red and green are on opposite ends of the color wheel and the color wheel includes an adjacent position in which red and green are separated by a space. The color guide includes a number of different variations of color wheel charts. It would be desirable to provide a color guide that would assist the artist in determining what colors are needed to create a desired color and that would help the artist create a scene. It would be desirable to provide a color guide in which colors do not blend in one position of the color guide. It would be desirable to provide a color guide in which colors are not separated by a color guide chart in an adjacent position. It would be desirable to provide a color guide that would help the artist to learn which colors will create a desired color and to learn which colors are used to create a desired color. It would be desirable to provide a color guide that would assist an artist to determine which color of paint should be applied at which location in order to create a desired color and to learn the relationship between each of the colors of paint and the resulting color. It would be desirable to provide a color guide that includes color relationships of colors used in a picture or painting.
