You will need
  • A sheet of paper, protractor, ruler, compass, eraser, gouache, brush, jar of water.
Prepare a pencil, a compass, a ruler, paint brush, palette, etc., that you will need when working. Under a sheet of paper spread the newspaper so as not to stain the table. With compass, pencil and ruler begin construction of the color circle.
Draw with a compass on a sheet of paper a circle of arbitrary radius, but it does not go beyond the borders of the sheet. If you have no compass, use the mug, Cup or any other object with a round plane. Further, inside the main circle , draw a circle of radius approximately two times less. With a ruler in the inner circle construct the inscribed equilateral triangle. From each side of the triangle swipe a perpendicular bisector to the center of the triangle. Thus, you divide the triangle into three equal parts. Then extend from this triangle a hexagon. The distance between the circumference of the outer and inner divide into 12 equal sectors.
Construct an inscribed triangle, hexagon and 12 sectors follow with a protractor. If you have no desire to do it, then print a template from the Internet. Now start filling in the color scheme. For work it is better to choose the gouache, it gives more accurate color.
Select three colors – red, yellow and blue – the colors of the first order (primary colors, which cannot be obtained by mixing). Each color paint three pieces of an inscribed triangle and the sector opposite them.
Further, mixing these colors gradually fill part of the circle. Mixing blue and red colors, purple color one of the vertices of the hexagon (between the flowers) and the sector opposite. Do the same, mixing red and yellow, then yellow and blue. Be careful when mixing each color was equal to the share of 50%, so you get the true colors of the second order. Check the picture, the sector needs to be painted one yellow, empty, orange, empty, red, empty and so on.
Next, fill in the blank sector of a circle of flowers of the third order. To do this, mix color 1 order with the neighboring color of order 2 in equal parts and apply paint. So, mix yellow and green you get yellow-green. Or mix blue and purple and get the blue and purple. The color wheel is ready.
