Have you ever heard about Colour Theory, and thought “what on earth is that?!”. Then you were like me a couple of years ago. That is why I created this lesson, to help everyone who struggles when it comes to understanding the ‘Colour Wheel’ and Colour Theory. In this lesson I will go through the colours which make up the ‘Colour Wheel’ and break into down into its parts. I will also touch a little on Colour Theory and how to apply the ‘Colour Wheel’ when creating paintings and the different colour schemes you can have and how they effect paintings and the effect on your viewer. So without further ado, take your seat in E-13 which is reserved just for you, and we can start!

A super simple project for you!
I want you to create your very own colour wheel:
- Draw a Triangle. Mark the letter Y above the top point, R at the right corner and B at the left corner. (Primary colours)
- Layer an upside-down Triangle to make a ‘star’. Label the upper-right with O, the lower-middle with P, and the upper-left with G (Secondary colours)
- Add a dot between each Primary colour and each Secondary colour. Draw a half circle from point to point around the 6 triangles.
- Next to each half circle, starting to the ‘right’ of Y
I’m looking forward to your findings! – Michael x
