Developing ‘Colour in its Entirety’

Developing ‘Colour in its Entirety’

Colour in its Entirety represents the culmination of Conway-Hyde’s findings. This set of theories formulates his artistic philosophy on creating a precise balance of colour based on the perception of colour through the wavelengths of visible light. From his findings, he learned that an individual only needs a small use of the eye to perceive the colour yellow, about 14%, due to its intensity. Yellow is then followed by red requiring 23%, green at 38%, and then blue needing the most with  62%. Additionally, his surveys revealed that there was a similar response to an individual’s favourite colour amongst female and male participants; blue being the most popular with 35% of women and 57% of men and the least favourite being brown with less than 3% for both. He translated this knowledge into his intentional use of colour within his work to create an ideal, pleasing representation.
