Basic Color Wheel Chart


Shown below is a basic Color Wheel Chart.

The Color Wheel is a common visual reference used by artists, fashion designers, beauticians, and others for teaching or learning the basics of color theory.



Color Wheel Chart


The color wheel is used for determining what pigments will look like when mixed together, as well as which colors work well together.

For instance, colors placed opposite to each other on the color wheel will look well together.

Also a good match are any two or three adjacent colors on the wheel.


Artists and designers who learn color theory need not be hindered by color-blindness. Rather, they can simply compare their colors to colors on the wheel, and recognize them as "same" or "different."


When two pigments (such as paints, for instance) are mixed, the result will be a shade that falls within the SHORTER distance between those two colors on the Color Wheel Chart.

When opposite colors are mixed, the distances from one color to the other are the same on the color wheel. The resulting color will be a muted shade of gray or brown. 


A slightly more complex color wheel is typically used by professional fashion designers, dress makers, interior decorators, landscapers, fine artists and others who take their colors seriously.
