Color Theory – Everything that has to do with color; Color wheel, primary, secondary, tertiary colors; tints and shades; warm and cool colors; complementary colors, etc.

Color Wheel – the order of colors as derived from the spectrum. The order of colors on the basic Color wheel is: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and Violet.
