Understanding the Color Wheel

Color theory relies on the color wheel as a fundamental tool to help us comprehend the connections between different colors. At the heart of the wheel, we find the primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. These primary colors represent the most pure and essential forms of color.

As we move towards the outer edges of the wheel, we encounter secondary colors like green, orange, and purple, which are created by blending the primary colors together. And finally, even further out, we discover tertiary colors that are born from combining a primary color with an adjacent secondary color.

Exploring Color Harmony

Different combinations on the color wheel help to create harmony in colors. When analogous colors are placed next to each other, they give off a peaceful and serene vibe. On the other hand, complementary colors, which are found opposite each other, create a strong contrast. Triadic and tetradic color schemes offer a wide range of combinations, each with its own distinct visual impact.
