How Color Plays an Important Role in Web Designing

Lets start with the Color Wheel which is nothing but the spectrum twisted around to make a complete color wheel that shows relationships between primary colors, secondary colors and complementary colors. The color wheel is particularly useful for showing how the colors relate to each other and how you can create new colors by mixing two or more colors.
