The Power of Complementary Colors

The Power of Complementary Colors

– Posted in: Coloring Tutorials

Come take a look at the Color Wheel with me. This little lesson on the “Power of Complementary Colors” was originally broadcast on Facebook (that is why the footage is so narrow) during one of my weekly LIVE events. I decided to take it and condense it into a tutorial because it had so much good information.

I also created a downloadable blank color wheel for everyone. Print one out and use your own set of colored pencils, paints, or markers to fill it in and then you too can harness the “Power of Complementary Colors”!!!!

Comment below if you would like a follow up tutorial video with more information on Color Theory. Have fun and enjoy the FREE color wheel.

    I enjoyed your version of the colour wheel. It has helped me understand my colouring in much more detail and how to improve my colouring. I love your videos and look forward to them. They bring me such joy. Can’t wait for your Tombow videos and colouring with markers. Keep up your brilliant work!

    • Jennifer Stay November 21, 2016, 10:18 am

      Yay! I’m so glad it helped you Anna. 🙂

    I was looking for a blank color wheel after seeing a card making program where they started with the blank color wheel. Now I am thinking this would be a fun thing to do with my granddaughter during the Christmas break from school. I’ll get her a watercolor set. Thanks

      Sounds wonderful Jean. 🙂

  • Gladys Berrier January 8, 2017, 4:20 pm

      You bet Gladys–I am putting together additional color theory training. 🙂

    Jennifer, Thank you for this video on the color wheel. You really explained the colors and it helps greatly! Also, printed out your color wheel. Thanks so much.

    • Jennifer Stay February 15, 2017, 3:30 pm

      You’re welcome Brenda–I’m so glad you like it and it helps.

  • Sharon Kirts February 21, 2017, 10:33 am

    I have several sets of colored pencils (my favorite medium). Some do better of certain color book pages than others. It’s a challenge to create a color wheel for each set to get the best results I can on each page.

  • Linda C. Crowder March 20, 2017, 1:32 pm

    I pull this color wheel study out to refer to every now and again, and it’s an invaluable tool. Thanks so much for doing this for us. I am never disappointed with your videos because I always learn something. Like today, I bought a set of soft pastels, went to your site and here it is a video showing me how to use them.

    • Jennifer Stay March 25, 2017, 1:29 pm

      Thank you Linda–I’m so glad my videos are helping. Yay 🙂

    Jennifer- I love your videos. Sometimes they through me off with complimentary colors. I have been a printer for 50 years or so and have been using a PMS book. Coloring with pencils is a whole new world. So I may call on you at times or re-watch your videos half a dozen times to try to understand them, then if I am still confused I will have to reach out and get a better explanation from you. Thanks Jerry Baker

    I wish I had a good printer. Will you eventually sell the items that people who have a printer can print?
