SplitPrimaryColourWheelThis colour wheel changed how I mixed colours forever!!

It was a burst of lightening clarity and I FINALLY understood why I had so much trouble mixing all the colours I wanted with only 3 tubes of primary colour.


You CAN’T mix all colours with only 3 primaries

It’s impossible.

One of your secondaries will end up a neutral secondary (and if it’s orange, it often isn’t a big deal – but if it’s purple or green, it is SO NOT a proper secondary).

Learning which of your paints is WARM and which are COLD (relatively), will teach you SO much about how to effectively mix the colour you want.
