introduction to the color theory
Introduction To the Color Theory
  • Color theory explains harmonious relationships between colors. By using three colors adjacent to each other, colors on opposite sides of the color wheel, three colors equally spaced around the color wheel, or two pairs of colors opposite each other, harmonious color relationships are produced.

Color Wheel
  • The color wheel is a chart of colors the visible spectrum that is used to show how colors relate to each other. It is made up of three primary, three secondary, and six intermediate colors.
  • Painting a color wheel gives practice in recognizing color relationships, use of bushes and paint.
  • A color wheel is laid out so that any two primary colors are separated by secondary colors.
  • Learning and using the color wheel is one of the foundations of making art. Through the discussion and creation of a color wheel the students will learn how to make colors and use them effectively in their art.


primary colors
Primary Colors
  • The primary colors are Red, Blue, and Yellow.
  • They cannot be made by mixing any colors together. They are just by themselves.


secondary colors
Secondary Colors
  • The secondary colors are orange, green, and violet.
  • They are mixed bye blending two primary colors together.
  • Ex. Red and Yellow mixed together produce orange.


intermediate colors
Intermediate Colors

Opposite colors on the color wheel that contrast each other the most extreme way, because they do not have any color in common.

A primary color is always complemented by a secondary color that is the mixture of the other two primary colors.

They are always directly across from one another.

Making a Color Wheel
  • Make a color wheel by tracing twelve small circles evenly spaced around the edge of a paper plate with a fine tip black marker.
  • Use red, blue, and yellow paint to fill in the primary colors.

  • Think of the color wheel as the face of a clock. Position 12 is red, position 4 is blue, and position 8 is yellow.
  • Next use a purple , green, and orange paint to fill in the secondary colors.
  • Again think of a clock. Position 2 is purple, which is between red and blue. Position 6 is green, which is between blue and yellow, and position 10 is orange, which is between read and yellow.
  • Next take a primary color with its adjacent secondary color to make a complementary color. Blend read and purple to make red-violet. That is in position 1.
  • Blend a blue with a purple to make blue-violet. That is in position 3. Do the same for the rest of the colors.
  • Position 5 is blue-green
  • Position 7 is yellow-green
  • Position 9 is yellow-orange
  • Position 11 is read orange.
