Transcript of Color Wheel

The Color Wheel
Color Wheel: The traditional wheel used to represent colors of pigments, consisting of twelve colors, including three primary colors, three secondary colors, and six tertiary colors.
Primary Colors: The three basic colors: red, yellow and blue, from which it is possible to mix all other colors. The primaries cannot be produced by mixing pigments.
Hue: the property of color that distinguishes one gradation from another and gives it its name (another name for color)
Color: An element of design with three properties, hue, value, and intensity.
Secondary Colors: Colors that result from a mixture of two primary colors.

Orange, green, and violet
Tertiary Colors: Colors created by mixing one primary and once secondary color that are next to each other on the color wheel.

yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, red orange, and yellow orange.
Complementary Colors: Two colors that are directly opposite each other on the color wheel, meaning they are in extreme contrast with each other.
Shade: A value created by mixing a color with black
Tint: A value created by mixing a color with white.
