  10. BLUE • Cool • quieting

  11. Secondary Colors • The mixture of any 2 primary colors YELLOW+ RED = ORANGE BLUE + YELLOW = GREEN RED + BLUE = VIOLET

  12. Tertiary Colors • Primary color + adjacent secondary color • Formed by mixing a secondary color with one of its primary parents. • Primary color is always listed first

  13. Tertiary Colors YELLOW-GREEN BLUE-GREEN BLUE-VIOLET RED-VIOLET RED-ORANGE YELLOW-ORANGE

  14. Neutral colors/Earth Tones • Not seen on color wheel • BLACK, WHITE, GRAY • BROWN, BEIGE, TAN

  21. Complementary • Direct opposites on the color wheel • Contrast • Do not share a common color • Vibrant when placed side by side (can be hard to look at) • Create a focal point • (Red and green, blue and orange, yellow and violet)

  22. Split Complementary- • 3 colors • One color and the 2 colors on either side of its compliment • Ex. Red and (not green but) yellow green and blue green
