Color Wheels and Color Theory

Lesson 2 in Dion Dior's Mastering Twinks class includes color theory and the first three exercises involve creating a color whell with Twinkling H2O's



I decided to do two wheels - one, above, with the recommended premixed colors.



The second using the primary colors and mixing my secondary and tertiary colors.

I am glad that I did both, I used the wrong color for my red in my mixed wheel and ended up with a brown rather than a purple.  I do have to say that the blue and the red used did not mix all that well.  Although all the other mixed turned out great.  It was a good lesson in mixing Twinks, they are very different from traditional watercolors.

This so pretty! I love the sheen! I have zero knowledge about watercolors/Twinks but this looks really fun.

Love the color wheel. Gee, does that mean I need to buy the Twinks needed to do that?
