Colour Wheel

In this assignment we learned about how different colours work together.  The primary colours are red, blue, and yellow.  The secondary colours, orange, green, and purple, are created by mixing the primary colours together.  The tertiary colours, red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red-violet, are created by mixing the secondary colours with the primary colours.  Complementary colours are opposite of each other on the colour wheel and create contrasting values.  Analogous colours are next to each other on the colour wheel and they are like themes of similar values.  Tints of colours can be created by gradually adding white to a colour.  Tones can similarly be created by adding grey, and shades with black.
