How to Match Colors - Colors play an important role in our life. They are best for both decorating and contrasting purpose. Without colors, life can look absolutely meaningless. So, is it not a good idea to learn all about colors? Learn about the color wheel: Take a look at the full diagram of colors that provide an illustration of which colors go together and which don't. Primary colors - The basic Red, blue and yellow are the primary colors. These are the basic colors in the color wheel that cannot be mixed using any other colors. Secondary colors - now comes the secondary colors in the wheel. Green, orange and purple are colors that can be formed mixing the primary colors. Secondary and tertiary colors: The color wheel also has tertiary colors with a combination of secondary colors. Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green and yellow green . Match primary colors with other primary colors and complementary colors: Also known as the concept of 'color harmony', created when different are combined together to create a pleasing effect. Colors like red, yellow and blue always harmonize. They are bold and eye-catching, and are always in. The basic idea is to stay in the same color family! These worksheets help students identify and match colors together and name colors as well
