Part 1 - Color Theory: Primary Colors

PART 2    PART 3    PART 4    PART 5

Let us walk, step by step, into the marvelous world of color theory.  This is not a comprehensive and in depth approach, but one that can open the doors, and the appetite, for further studying.  First, we'll address primary colors as defined by Webster's: "any of a set of colors from which all other colors may be derived" And we'd like to add to the definition:  Any color that can not be obtained from the mixture of others.

The primary colors are: RED, YELLOW, and BLUE.

These 3 colors form a RED triangle. Keep that in mind as we build the COLOR WHEEL.
