Colors have their own natural weights. Yellow is a lighter weight color, while blue and red are heavier.
Looking at this chart created by Munsell, we can see how the weight of the color relates to values in a black to white value scale.
Yellow is a naturally lighter color, while blue and red are naturally darker.
Some questions for us to consider:
- Is there a difference between color weight and value?
- How do we make use of color weight in our work?
