View Full Version : Munsell vs Newton's colour wheel

06 June 2005, 10:20 AM
As a digital and traditional "artist" I have always used the classic colour wheel invented by Newton: Yellow, Red and Blue as primary colours. Now I bought one of the books Lunatique suggested, and the author uses Munsell's one (which I had never heard of).

Now, I am really intrigued about it, as it seems quite reasonable (5 primary colours, where green's complementary is red-purple and not just red, etc...) but Google seems to provide no valuable info.

Anyone can comment your experiences about this colour wheels (or any other you know), which one is better and why, etc...?

thanks all!!!

I believe Cyan Magenta and Yellow are the true colour primary's.

Primaries for the printing industry or for the artist can be used as well? Never heard of it...
