About Colour Theory
Colour theory demonstrates how humans perceive colour. Based on the colour wheel, colour theory explains the distinction between primary, secondary and tertiary colours. Colour theory dates back thousands of years to Classical times. It can be used to identify warm colours, cool colours, which colours complement each other, and which don’t. Colour theory show how the primary colours of red, yellow and blue can create all other hues and lead to a spectrum of colour.
