In Class Notes on Sky Gradations


Syllabus

Why is the Sky Blue?

The "Rayleigh Scattering Effect" also called Blue Scatter," where small air molecules upon light passing through, resulting in the refraction of more short (blue) wavelengths than longer wavelengths at the other end of the spectrum (red).

Design Elements and Principles for Sky: Value, Color, Intensity, Gradation, Variety & Movement

The sky is always in motion and continually shifts in value, hue & intensity. There are two major shifts

1) Horizontal shift: Emulates from the light source
2) Vertical shift: Occurs from horizon to zenith

Sky Values

Light Source: What is the direction of the light? The light source is always the lightest and brightest. A gradient from the light source diminishes or darkens in value.
Well of the Sky: Darkest and bluest part of the sky, directly overhead, only at dawn and dust.

Sky Hues

Color Temperature: Warm at Horizon to Cool at Zenith
Color from Light Source: Pale Yellow (glare-intense illumination) to Blue-Violet.

Sky Temperature

Morning: Warm (Pink, Yellow-Orange)
Midday: Cool (Blue)
Afternoon: Warmer (Red-Orange)
