How to read and use a Color Wheel 

There are three types of color found on the color wheel. 

  1. Primary - Red, yellow, and blue 

The only hues that cannot be made by mixing other hues.

     2. Secondary- Green, orange and violet

When 2 primary hues are mixed together; found between each primary hue.

3.Tertiary- Red-orange, red-violet and blue-green 

When a primary and secondary are mixed together.
