Colour Theory

  • See the excellent Color FAQ for information about how colours work, and a template for a colour wheel you can print out and fill in yourself.
  • For a more theoretical and historical look at colour theory, see theory of colour in science and art from Terry Boyce at the University of Hong Kong. (Via Moleskinerie.)
