• The color wheel is the color spectrum in a circular form. The color wheel is a useful tool for demonstrating the relationships between colors.

    • Primary Colors - These colors cannot be mixed from other colors. All other colors are formed from them. The three primary colors are red, yellow and blue.
    • Secondary Colors - These colors are formed by mixing equal proportions of two primary colors together. Orange comes from red and yellow, green comes from blue and yellow, and purple from blue and red.
    • Tertiary Colors - These colors are made from mixing secondary colors together.
