Color Wheel Tri-Tone Sets Worksheets

As a complement to my Premium Color Scheme Selector I created 6 new worksheets to help you learn to build harmonious color trios for your coloring pages, books and projects. These worksheets will help you get amazing blends as well as enable you to pick a beautiful color palette in under a minute! They are designed to work with any brand of colored pencils, gel pens or markers. I have also included my personal color choices for both the Polychromos and Prismacolor colored pencils.

These worksheets are available as an immediate download for my Premium Members.

Plus, I just released a new premium coloring page for you to practice with! See the download link below.

Color Comparisons

Here are photos of my colored worksheets where you can see the numbers I chose and compare prismacolor to polychromos. Please note that due to different camera and monitor colors, the colors will not perfectly match the results you will get. But they’re still fun to look at. 😉

    I Am not a Premium member, just a plain Jane. But would love to be able to copy your blank charts. Or even all your downloads here. You’re very good at your craft as I have mentioned before. Thanks hope you are doing well, have a great week.

    • Jennifer Stay Aug 8, 2017 @ 18:36

      I do have several free coloring pages and a few tools for free members. Be sure to take advantage of those! 😉

  • Janice Aug 8, 2017 @ 17:41

    Great job Jennifer on all your hard work. Thank you for sharing!

  • LindaP Aug 9, 2017 @ 23:23

    Thank you Jennifer … you do wonderful work. I hope in the near future my schedule will become less hectic and I can take advantage of your great Premium Membership.

    I do however carve out time to watch your videos and really enjoy them 😉

  • Nancy Aug 12, 2017 @ 9:53

    These downloadables are amazing. Thank you for sharing your talent and hard work. It is well worth the cost of premium membership just for these pdfs –not to mention all the beautiful artwork! Thank you!

    Dear Jennifer:
    Just this week I found your website and BOY what a find I’ve found!!!! I have been coloring 2 years now and your videos and tips have showed me other ways to create my beauties!!! I have learned sooo much from you and are now putting into practice your tips and methods, and are beginning to see the results. But, practice is the key and I am doing so…
    I was sharpening my Prisma’s and Poly’s the wrong way and not getting the best results and have had breakage. However, due to your video, I corrected that problem and now I get that beautiful trail of the pencil color that -“You Love So Much”.. and no more bad sharpenings.
    I truly love your videos and i haven’t even watched all of them yet. I love the Global pencil case but will have to wait to get one as they are pricy, but i will get one soon. I love the three pencils together that you have created and I will be sorting out my pencils the same way.
    I would personally like to thank you for all that you have done on all your videos and wish you continued success!!! COLOR ON!!

    Your friend,
    Janet Blalock

    • Jennifer Stay Aug 15, 2017 @ 8:54

      I’m so glad you found me Janet! Thank you so much for your kind words. 🙂

  • Roberta DeJean Sep 15, 2017 @ 15:55

    Hi Jennifer,

    You and Steve make the best videos! I saw this one not long after you guys did it and loved the concept. I was finally able to get the full set of Poly’s and remembered you saying if one of us had the set to see if we could help you out with the Yellows. Here are the Yellows that I pulled out of the set:

    Light Yellow Ochre 183
    Light Yellow Glaze 104
    Cadmium Yellow Lemon 205
    Light Chrome Yellow 106
    Cadmium Orange 111
    Orange Glaze 113

    Hope that this is able to help you figure it out. Keep making such awesome videos!!

    • Jennifer Stay Sep 18, 2017 @ 15:17

      Thank you Roberta 🙂

  • Rita Nov 1, 2017 @ 10:48

    Love your work and awesome color knowledge. I struggle in this area and would love to purchase your entire color selector system, but I really don’t want or need the extras as far as coloring pages etc. Is there a way that I can purchase without doing a recurring $5 per month?

    • Jennifer Stay Dec 4, 2017 @ 10:03

      Thank you Rita. As of right now, no I don’t offer the system on its own; however, we are working on something I think you’ll be interested. Be sure to keep an eye on our emails and social profiles. 😉

  • Jill Eide Nov 26, 2017 @ 13:19

    hello, having trouble finding the pdf to print the color scheme selector set. plez help soon!

  • Judy Feb 11, 2018 @ 11:33

    I bounce all over the place with doing different types of art. I am back to coloring books and once again have to tell you how incredibly helpful your charts are to me. Picking colors were a major stress for me but your color wheels have helped me tremendously!

  • ccsawyer@onemain.com Dec 17, 2018 @ 17:21

    Hi Jennifer, I joined to follow along with you on the YouTube with the three color blending charts. I checked everywhere on your site for those images and only got the three page explaination. Please help, Cecilia

  • Carolyn Kessler Jan 3, 2019 @ 11:22

    I live in Cape Town, South Africa and would love to become a Premium member…is that a possibility? I could subscribe on my card if your site is set up for overseas payments. I’m a total newby to colouring and your clips have been invaluable. Thank you.

    • Jennifer Stay Jan 7, 2019 @ 18:37

      Yes Carolyn 🙂 It’s one of the reasons we have an online coloring membership–so our international friends can also participate!

  • sanjay Mahajan Sep 18, 2021 @ 8:02

    Wow ……… i subscribed your channel only for understanding color theory Thanks

  • salerno600@aim.com Apr 6, 2022 @ 20:20

    Hi Jennifer: I became a premium member after I swatched a set of pencils using one of your public downloads. Your eye for color has given me 4 new sets of pencils!!! (Castle arts, polychromos, prismas, black widow 144) I think that alone was worth the price of admission. Anyway, thank you for your painstaking thoroughness and diligence. It has made a difference in how I look at color. Thank you

  • Ariels Apr 20, 2022 @ 9:46

    Which Prismacolor size set is required to have the same colors you used for these sheets?

    • Jennifer Stay Apr 20, 2022 @ 12:42

      You would need to get either the full 150 set; or you could get a smaller set and then purchase the missing pencils open stock.

  • Noa Mar 16, 2023 @ 0:09

    Hi Jennifer, I’m new to colouring and love your YouTube videos!

    I’ve a few questions if that’s OK? I really want to sign up for membership to get the colour picker pdf and learn how to use it and to make my own.

    Am I understanding correctly that’d I’d get the full printable digital download and be able to make all my own versions of the sheets of colour schemes with one main colour used as a starting off point per page?

    And that I’d also receive the beautiful full precoloured version that you did the flip through of in you video? The one that has all the analogous, triad, tetrad etc examples of what works with every colour, pages and pages of that?

    And finally, does signing up for 5 dollars per month commit me to a minimum or maximum amount of months

    • Jennifer Stay Mar 16, 2023 @ 14:37

      Yes, $5 gets you all of our tri-tone workbook downloads as well as the quick color picker–which is what you described above. And no, there isn’t a set amount of time you have to commit. 🙂

  • Noa Mar 16, 2023 @ 0:12

    Apologies, that got long and it cut me off before I finished my last question! 🤦‍♀️😄 I ask about the monthly payment commitment because I’m unemployed and on disability benefits currently and am never sure from month to month if I’ll have enough of afford little extras, so I have to be careful about signing up for anything with a long term commitment if that makes sense 😕

    Thanks again for all your wonderful content and amazing YouTube videos! 🙂

  • Noa Mar 16, 2023 @ 0:15

    Oops one last question! I currently only have the 60 set of polychromos that I was recently given as a wonderful gift. Would the colour scheme tutorials and colour scene selector pdf work for me still, or would i be lost since I don’t own the 120 set and we don’t have affordable or easy access to open stock here in Ireland so I cannot add to my set 😬

    • Jennifer Stay Mar 16, 2023 @ 14:35

      I’m not sure how many of the 36 tri-tones that we picked for polychromos are found in your 60 set, but certainly not all of them. You would either need to purchase the 120 set, or you can purchase open stock only those that are lacking in the 60.

  • Judy Simmons Oct 8, 2023 @ 14:47

    Jennifer, I admire you so much. Change is constant. Sometimes it doesn’t go the way we plan. But I believe you did the most important thing. You recognized this out-of-character behavior and asked for help. God Bless Steve. You keep hanging in there. I’ll be watching. For now, I’m going to purchase some Tri-Tone booklets. I purchased the books for Prismacolor and Black Widows. Looking through the booklet, I thought, “I don’t need all these pages. I’ll never use this book” I put them in my bookcase. A couple of months later I was looking for another book and picked up the Prisma book, sat down, and flipped through. Holy Smokes, it is now my Prisma Bible and the same with Black Widows. I now just HAVE to HAVE others. Jennifer, I do not really like doing all that coloring so I use your fabulous selections. I promise to end this but I have to say something about Steve. Having an “A” personality, I love details. And I prefer pretty darn close to PERFECT. When I received my books, I was in awe of the quality. Paper and all that is nice but what got my attention was the beauty of how it was assembled. Good job to both of you 😊
