Painting your own Color Wheel

Hand Painted YURMBY Color Wheel

I’ve spent the last week painting my own color wheel, using a printed YURMBY one as reference. I failed in getting a greeny enough cyan and saturated enough purple. The cyan is also too light compared to the others (I took its lightness up with white).

Colors I used: Cad Yellow Light, Scarlet Lake (soon to be replaced by Pyrrole Red), Permanent Rose, Ultramarine, Primary Cyan, Titanium White, Mixture of Ivory Black and Raw Umber for the gray.

Here was my setupPainting a color wheel
