The Colour Wheel

     The Colour Wheel or color circle can help us understand the use of colour in art, illustration and design.
     The Colour Wheel shows primary, secondary, tertiary, warm, cool and complimentary colours as used in colour theory when painting.

Paint your own Colour Wheel
Begin a color wheel by drawing a circle and divide it in 12 parts.
First,  paint with the primary colors in the 100%.

Then we are going to mix the two primary to get the secondary colors.

Finally we mix the primary colors of two by two, one of them 100% and the other 50 %.
There are different shapes for the Colour Theory.
