Hue, Value, and Intensity


I've been designing up a storm this week. Midterm projects are due next so everyone has been staying in the lab an extra lot. It's fun... lots of camaraderie. :)

One of my classes has an actual midterm exam. It's a Composition for Designers class, so we are studying things like texture, line, color, placement of objects on a page, etc.

The definitions that always stump me are the difference between value and intensity, as it refers to color. They're both lightening and darkening of color hues but in different ways. I think I better research that more before the test. Lol.

The picture above demonstrates the relationship between hue, value, and intensity. Hue is the actual color in it's base form (red, blue, green). Value are the up and down variations. Intensity is measured out from the center. Clear as mud?
