Illustration Tutorial: The Color Wheel

Andonella shows us a simple way to understand color and how to use a color wheel to improve our illustrations.

Color is an essential part of any artist’s work, but to use it effectively, you need to understand it first. The color wheel is a useful tool that will help you do just that. It usually takes the form of a circle. Around the circumference, you can identify the primary colors and see how they mix together to make the secondary and tertiary colors.

Andonella, who teaches the Domestika course, Introduction to Illustration of Characters with Gouache and India Ink, is here to give you some tips on how to create a color wheel from scratch. You will be able to use it to choose color palettes for your illustrations.
