1 Color WheelThe colour wheel is divided into three categories: primary, secondary, and tertiary.The three primary colours are red, yellow and blue.These colours are considered to be foundation colours because they are used to create all other colours.
2 Colour WheelBy combining two of the primary colours equally, three secondary colors are formed. They are orange, green and violet.The six tertiary colours (AKA intermediate colours) are made by combining a primary and an adjacent secondary colour. These colors are red-orange, red-violet, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-green and blue-violet.
4 Cool and Warm ColoursColours are also divided into cool and warm categories.The cool colours are any combination of green, blue and violet.Warm colours are any combination of red, orange and yellow.
5 Tint A tint of a colour is made by adding white. A shade of a colour is made by adding black.
6 Colour Harmonies (Schemes) Monochromatic - This schemeuses a single hue. (example: red andits varying tints and shades)Analogous - This scheme usesadjacent hues.(example: red, red-orange,and red-violet)
7 Complementary Colours If two hues are opposite each other on the colour wheel they are considered to be complementary colors.When used together in a design they make each other seembrighter and moreintense. (example:red and green)
8 Triadic ColoursThis scheme also uses three colours. They are evenly spaced from each other. Think of an equilateral triangle. (example: red, yellow, and blue)
