Color basics – The color scheme

We learn something about colors when we are very little, in kindergarten and elementary school, but what is color? Well it is all about light and how it is reflected by everything surrounding us, objects absorb and reflect light in different combinations of wavelengths, our brains translate those combinations into color.


We see a lot of colors in our daily live and seems natural for us, we already know that they affect our emotions, when we are sad we say we are blue, and red is the color of passion, for example, but there are many studies about them and their behavior, it exists a “theory of colors” and that information, even when is largely used by artists like painters and graphic designers, it is very useful for all of us.


Why do we need to understand colors if we are not artists?

You need that information for make-up, to combinate colors in harmony in on your face, in architecture, advertising (since color can affect our mood and emotions), even in business, you need to know which color will motivate your employees, which will attract more clients, what combination of colors use in our papers, etc, you even will need that knowledge when you edit a picture or create a presentation or a document with images.


Some basic information

Let’s see, we all learned in school that there are three primary colors, and combining them we can get secondary colors, mixing secondary colors with primary ones we get tertiary colors, and so on, there also exist three properties of colors you surely has seen in images editors, tint, shade and tone, let’s take the pure color, that is the hue, the tint is the effect of adding white to the hue, the shade is obtained adding black, and tone is obtained adding grey, you can also classify colors in warm and cold, there is a color wheel that you can consult, some color wheels include tint and shade colors, an imaginary line divide the colors of the wheel into warm colors and cold ones.


Color schemes

Color schemes allow us to combinate color in an harmonic way to get the most desirable result ever, it is important to know which color complement what other color, and which of them combine between them.


Using the color wheel we draw imaginary lines connecting colors in schemes, this ones have been largely studied and have proved to be very useful, here we have the basic schemes:

– Complementary colors are any two colors opposite each other on the wheel.

-Split complementary colors use three colors. The scheme takes one color and matches it with the two colors adjacent to its complementary color.

– Analogous colors are any three colors next to each other on the wheel.

– Triadic colors are any three colors that are equally apart on the color wheel.

– Rectangle or Tetradic or double complementary colors uses four colors together, in the form of two sets of complementary colors.

The best theatres to look out for in the USA 2018

Some might say that the one and only American theatre is located in New York and has been the scenario to incredible musical numbers. Yes, we’re talking about Broadway, but not because it is the most recognized theatre in the whole United States it is the only one that exists. Cultural movements have been spreading across the whole country, meaning that some outstanding regional theatres have been building up in the latest years and there’s plenty to be seen. So follow the read and plan a cultural tour through the United States by getting to know the best theatres this country has.

Let’s start our journey with the outstanding façades of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City. This theatre has two strange but amazing structures that resemble an onion or a shell, or both, these structures are part of the two main performance halls. Also, this architectural gem embellishes the Kansas City landscape with its steel panels and glass-walled atrium.

This theatre shows that size doesn’t really matter when it comes to greatness. The Central City Opera House located in Central City, Colorado is a historic must-see. Even when it’s not that big, this opera house was built in 1878 and is home to one of the oldest opera companies of the US that are still performing. It’s known for hosting one of the most famous summer Opera festival of the country.

From classic structures, we jump to the modern awesomeness that lay on the Durham Performing Arts Center. This theatre; located in Durham, North Carolina; counts with space for 2800 spectators. And its outer walls entirely made of glass make an incredible view from both ways: the lobby is perfectly lit by sunlight at day and its intricate staircases make the structure even more awesome; once that you’re in, you can watch the city skyline and be amazed. Now you know that culture is not the only thing that shines in this center.

This theatre has greatness in its name, not for nothing is the home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. The Walt Disney Concert Hall counts with a mesmerizing façade with a lot of undulated steel panels and glass doors. This theatre is the heart of the Los Angeles cultural movement. It lacks of column beams and it has one of the most amazing acoustics that could be tested with its incredible built-in organ of 6134 pipes!

An incredible theatre that combines the best of modernity and classic features is located in San Francisco, California. The War Memorial Opera House is part of an incredible cultural complex that goes by the name of San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. It can host to 7000 spectators! The style given to its façades, as a Beaux-Arts structure, and its inner 38 feet ceiling work fine to honor those who served during the Great War.

There are many more theatres to be seen in the USA. Don’t wait more and have a cultural journey!

Top 10 Best movies of all times!

The movies on this list are ranked according to their success (awards & nominations), their popularity, and their cinematic greatness from a directing/writing perspective


The Godfather” (1972)

Well, if Stanley Kubrick described it as “possibly the greatest movie ever made,”Francis Ford Coppola’s gangster-movie-redefining adaptation of Mario Puzo’s Mafia novel is the Empire Greatest Movies Poll No. 1 incumbent, and for a very good reason. It sits right at the juncture between ‘classic’ and ‘modern’ cinema; it feels respectably venerable, while at the same time vibrant and vital — not a dry, cinematic relic.

the movie is based on The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.


The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2003)

Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron’s army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.


“Pulp Fiction” (1994)

The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.


The Social Network” (2010)

Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business.


“Psycho” (1960)

A Phoenix secretary embezzles $40,000 from her employer’s client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote motel run by a young man, Norman Bates under the domination of his mother.


Casablanca (1943)

A Casablanca, Morocco casino owner in 1941 shelters his former lover and her husband, a Czechoslovakian freedom fighter, from the Nazis.


Star Wars: Episode V — the Empire Strikes Back (1980)

the strongest of the saga. Not just because the baddies win (temporarily), or because it Force-slammed us with that twist (“No, I am your father”). Empire super-stardestroys thanks to the way it deepens the core relationships — none more effectively than Han and Leia’s. She loves him. He knows. And it still hurts.


Alien (1979)

is a science fiction and horror film directed by British filmmaker Ridley Scott and premiered in 1979. The cast consisted of actors Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto, and the plot relates the stalking of an alien creature to the crew of a spaceship.
