Color, Value, and Intensity

Here’s a little poster I made showing the relationship between a color’s intensity and value. I found it interesting how you could have such different colors and intensities and still get the same value.

This is a good thing to remember when you have far too many values than you can produce in paint, or may want to produce, and need to still show form. Instead of going darker or lighter you can simply change color or intensity.
