  Design Notes: Color Wheel
A color wheel is based on a circle that joins the ends of the spectrum and is helpful as a guide to mixing colors.
The secondary colors are named red, green and blue and are the primary colors of the additive or light color theory (called RGB colors).
Color can not be used as a background because it would effect the colors in the color wheel too much.

  Color theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Traditionally colors are represented on a wheel of 12 colors: three primary colors, three secondary colors (created by mixing primary colors), and six tertiary colors (created by mixing the primary and secondary colors).
The organization of colors on the various color wheels is very subjective, and may depend on whether a particular wheel is used for color perception, color psychology, or color mixing.
Adding a complementary color to a color on the canvas is the traditional technique for making shadows, as well as for choosing a balance of color overall, so that the eye does not tire from an overuse of red, for example.

 Color Wheel Pro: Color Theory Basics
According to color theory, harmonious color combinations use any two colors opposite each other on the color wheel, any three colors equally spaced around the color wheel forming a triangle, or any four colors forming a rectangle (actually, two pairs of colors opposite each other).
The analogous color scheme uses colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel.
The complementary color scheme consists of two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel.

At the center of the wheel, the fl square symbolizes the dark neutral color that results from mixing all three subtractive "primaries" together: this is a color wheel for paints, not for light.
In the standard "color theory" account, the three new paints we've added to the color wheel are the complementary colors to the three "primaries," and this is a fundamentally new color relationship.
Color antagonism is inferred from complementary afterimages or paint mixtures in which two complementary colors produce a neutral or gray mixture, each destroying the hue of the other.

The wheel slider selects the hue component, and the triangle inside (in other programs, it is a rectangle more often than a triangle) visualizes the two other dimensions for the chosen hue: its value, or brightness (vertically), and saturation (horizontally).
Although colors changing across the rainbow are the visible effect of monotonously increasing light wavelength, the color wheel continuum is all but monotonous.
Some colors are definitely perceived as independent and standalone (red, green, blue), others need more elaboration to localize (cyan, magenta, yellow), and all the rest are clearly perceived as mixtures or transitions of neighboring colors.
