Your color wheel will serve as a reference for identifying color relationships such as analogous, complementary, warm/cool and so on …


Analogous colors are adjacent to one another on the color wheel.


Complementary colors are directly opposite from one another.


Divide the wheel into warm and cool sections by placing a small mark between yellow-green and yellow, and another mark between violet and red-violet.


When finished, the color wheel should provide a nearly continuous transition of color like the rainbow in circular form. Each of the 12 colors should be distinctly different from one another, but they should also flow evenly.


What are the primary colors? Why are they called this?

What are the secondary colors?


What are the tertiary or intermediate colors?


 Did you put all of the colors in the correct place?


Assess the flow. The color is like the rainbow in cirular form; do the sections flow well into one another?


Assess the balance of your intermediate colors. For example, does the yellow-green seem too yellow or too green?


Did you have any problems in handling the paint? If so, what were they?


On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the overall neatness of the assignment?


Which color did you use to mix the intermediate colors? Please explain.


What did you learn from making the color wheel?
