The Color Theory
The color theory consists of three categories: color harmony, the color wheel, and how color is used
The color theory contains millions of color concepts, definitions, and techniques.
It creates a reasonable construction for color
When using color, color harmony should be taken in to deep consideration.

Color Wheel
Color wheel: A circle that is based on red, yellow, and blue which are arranged in way to show the many different hues of color
Sir Isaac created the first color wheel in 1666.
Through the years, the color wheel has been modified.
The three levels that the color wheel contains include: primary colors/traditional colors (red, yellow, blue), secondary colors (the mixture of primary colors), and tertiary colors (the mixture of secondary and primary colors).
