The Color Wheel
All other colors are made from primary colors.
You cannot mix two colors to create a primary color.
Secondary colors are made by mixing equal parts of two primary colors.
Tertiary colors are made by mixing a primary and a secondary color.
Complementary colors juxtaposed bring out the brightness in each other. Mixing two complements together produces a neutral tone.
When an artist creates a piece of art, they take into account the color scheme they will use.
To create a split-complementary triad, choose a color, find it's complement, and use the colors to either side of the complement.
To create an analogous color scheme, choose a color and then select the colors to either side of it. Analogous color schemes are very harmonious.
Intensity is the brightness or dullness of a color. The more of a color's complement is added to it, the more dull it becomes.
The tint of a color is created by adding white to it to lighten it.
The shade of a color is created by adding black to darken it.
Value is the darkness or lightness of a color
