Today I started with a color wheel. I really didn't need it -- color theory in ingrained in my head -- but it's easier to show you the different color schemes rather than try to just verbally explain them. I am explaining, although most of you probably already know it.
In Additive Color (see Week 1, Day 4 for more info) all colors are created by adding colors together. The primary colors, which cannot be mixed from any other colors are red, yellow, blue (and black and white). Secondary colors are made by mixing 2 primary colors together in equal amounts. Tertiary colors by mixing a secondary and one of it's primary colors together. Tints of a color have white added, and shades of a color have black added.
