									       The Color Wheel




A Brief Review on Color Theory
             Color
  The visual response to the
wavelengths of sunlight identified
 as red, green, blue and so on;
having the physical properties of
   hue, intensity, and value.
             PRIMARY COLORS
Primary colors are colors from which all other
              colors are made.

     RED            BLUE         YELLOW



        SECONDARY COLORS
Secondary colors that are created from equal
    amounts of a pair of primary colors

   ORANGE          GREEN           VIOLET
                 Tertiary Colors
Tertiary colors are colors made from equal amounts of a
          pair of primary and secondary colors.

                     red-violet
                    blue-violet
                    blue-green
                   yellow-green
                   yellow-orange
                    red-orange
            Analogous colors
Analogous colors are any three colors which are
 side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as
    yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange.




  Three consecutive colors on the color wheel
            Complementary Colors
 Complementary colors are any two colors which
are directly opposite each other in the color wheel.
   Examples are red and green, red-purple and
 yellow-green. In the illustration, there are several
    variations of yellow-green in the leaves and
   several variations of red-purple in the orchid.
       TINT
Tints are light values
   of a color. One
 usually makes tints
  by mixing a color
    with different             SHADE
  amounts of white.
                            Shades are dark
                         values of a color. One
                         usually makes shades
                         by mixing a color with
                          different amounts of
                                  black.
                  Monochromatic

A Monochromatic color scheme is one color.
The primary color is integrated with neutral colors such
               as black, white, or gray.
SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY
          The split complementary scheme is
          a variation of the standard
          complementary scheme. It uses a
          color and the two colors adjacent
          to its complementarycolor.
                          Triadic Color Scheme
 The triadic color scheme uses
   three colors equally spaced
        around the color wheel.
    Let’s review what we just learned on our
                  handhelds.


    1. Open up the color review for students
          PowerPoint in Docs-To-Go

2. Open it and answer the questions using the list
                     view.

           3. We will review it together
