Ways to use the color wheel

I've seen color wheels, and knew about the opposites, but triangles and square calculators for color values that would 'work together' was new to me.

"Sessions - Color Theory: Color Wheel" is probably basic art school stuff, but since I didn't go to art school, I found it interesting (even though the video isn't dramatic entertainment...)

What is fascinating is to look at some picture books (and covers of Middle Grade and YA novels) and see how the color theory and combinations talked about in the video underpins a lot of the amazing illustrations we look at every day!

Illustrate and Write On,
