Learning about Colour Theory is essential for anyone who intends to use colour, whether in sewing, painting, interior or interactive digital design.
Understanding the key concepts is the place to start: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Warm, Cool, Hue, Intensity, Value, Monochromatic, Analogous, Complementary and Split Complementary. That’s a lot of vocabulary to digest. We are going to go through each term using coloured pencils as examples.
To understand these terms, you need to be aware of The Colour Wheel. It consists of 12 segments and can be filled using only three colours.
