TITLE "The Advancing/Receding Contrarium of Tone and Color"


Color and its relationship to tone was a lifelong study of Rowland B. Wilson. This chart compares the intensity of colors and their qualities of advancing or receding to an eleven-step gray scale, based on animation cel color chips with the numerical equivalents listed on the right. It illustrates that rich intense colors can be used at each tonal step rather than muddy color mixtures. Embellished by charming decorations it is beautiful in itself but also extremely useful as an excellent chart of color and tonal values. Rowland created a series of “visual shorthand” posters that he kept constantly on display in his studio. Done in his distinctive style they stand as individual works of art as well as compendiums of invaluable information. These distillations of ideology, techniques, art principles, tips and tricks are sure to become classic reference in the art of “making it look easy”.
