Temperature Colour Wheel. 18 Segments

The consideration of the relative temperature of a colour in a mixture is extremely important. The Temperature Colour Wheel uses a hot and cold of each primary colour and a mixture of each with each for the secondary colours, giving you four different oranges, greens and violets on the outer ring. A controlled amount of white is added on the first inner ring and more white on the second inner ring. Looking at these different secondary colour mixtures, you will see that some of them are cleaner and brighter and others are dirtier and duller. This is due to the temperature of the two Primaries used in the mixture. The choice of the primaries in the mixture makes the difference between ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ secondary colour.
