14 The Colour Wheel
A color wheel is often used to help explain and understand color.
15 Primary Colours
The three primary colors are red yellow and blue. They are called primary colors because they could be mixed to make all the other colors but mixing other colors cannot make them.
16 Secondary Colours
The secondary colors are orange green and violet. Mixing equal amounts of two primary colors together makes secondary colors. As a result they are located midway between the primary colors on the color wheel.
17 Tertiary Colours
Tertiary colors are also known as intermediate colors. Both terms refers to the colors found between the primary and secondary colors. Mixing uneven amounts of two primary colors together makes tertiary colors. Examples of tertiary colors are Yellow-Green Blue-Green Blue-Violet and Red-Violet.

21 Analogous Colours
Analogous (uh-NAL-uh-gus) colors sit next to each other on the color wheel. They tend to look pleasant together because they are closely related.
TRY IT! Choose a primary color and a secondary color. For example you might choose blue and green. Dont they look nice together Thats because they are analogous. With just these two colors you can create even more analogous colorsblue-green green-blue and others in-between. All of these will have a color in common blue.
Neutrals dont usually show up on the color wheel. Neutral colors include black white gray and sometimes brown and beige. They are sometimes called earth tones.
TRY IT! There are a few different ways to make neutral colors. You can blend black and white to make gray. You can create brown in two waysby blending two complementary colors together or by blending all three primary colors together.
