Neutralizing Color With Complements

Advanced Color Wheel – Part 2

In this lesson, we complete the middle ring of our advanced color wheel. This is an exercise in creating neutralized versions of the bright colors from the outer ring. All those bright colors are quite beautiful but can be too bright to look realistic. Most colors we see around us are not bright and vibrant, especially in the natural environment. They are also great for showing shade and shadow.
