#bigartquest #9 The Color Wheel | The Art Sherpa
An easy beginner look at the Color wheel used for artists. This is a first introduction to Color for painters. The Big Art Quest free online art classes

Acrylic paper or Multimedia paper - your Big Art Book

Quest : Make a Wheel from your own paint.

Beginners learn an introduction to color and the terms artist use to talk about it :)
Primary: Red yellow and blue.
Note most artist feel there are 6 primaries not 3. Warm and cool primaries.
Secondary : the mix of two primary colors
Tertiary: The combo of a primary and secondary color
Warm and Cool: A way to talk about how close a color is to blue or yellow and red
Complimentary : Color that are opposite on the color wheel and when mixed tone or grey
Analogous: colors sit next to each other on the color wheel. They tend to look pleasant together because they are closely related.

Acrylics are a fun and enjoyable painting medium. I prefer 'Creative Mark' brushes, and I use Liquitex heavy body acrylic paint, Matisse Derivan, and golden colors.

I love teaching people to paint in a supportive environment. Everyone deserves to have art in their lives and feel the joy that art can bring! Follow along and share your art journey with me! I look forward to hearing from you.
