Colour wheel   

Colour wheel

The colour wheel helps us define the relationships among the various colours.

The chromatic spectrum visible to the human eye is wrapped in a circle shape, that lets us perceive the possible derivations and conjugations and the various harmonic relationships.

Circulo cromático   Primary colours
In nature, it is from primary colours like the yellow, blue and red that all colours are derived from.

Secondary colours
From the combination of these, we obtain the secondary colours.

Tertiary colours
From the combination of primary colours with secondary colours, we obtain tertiary colours.

Complementary colours
These are the colours that occupy opposite positions in the colour wheel.
