Why is the color wheel important?
- The color wheel shows relationships between the colors.
- Artists often use the color wheel as a tool to help choose colors for compositions.
Primary Colors – cannot be made from other colors
Secondary Colors – made by mixing two primary colors
– When you mix 2 complementary colors together you get brown.
Warm Colors – remind us of the sun or fire.
Cool Colors – remind us of ice or water.
Neutrals – are not found on the color wheel. Brown, black, gray, and white are considered neutrals.
