A colour wheel is an illustrative organisation of hues around a circle that shows the relationship between primary colours, secondary colours and complementary colours.

Traditional colour wheels consist of 12 colour families:

RED, YELLOW, BLUE are regarded as free from white or black. They help us create the 12 colour families in their relative hues.

 

 

SECONDARY COLOUR Mixing any two of our primary colours – VIOLET, GREEN, ORANGE

 

 

TETIARY COLOUR BLUE+GREEN, BLUE+VIOLET, RED+VIOLET, RED+ORANGE, YELLOW+ORANGE, YELLOW+GREEN
