Here's some visuals for every color category. The numbers on the left are the values and at the bottom is the chroma/saturation. One reason I find these images helpful is being able to see the value of a color at full saturation. For example yellow has a very high value and makes a good color to lighten other colors rather then using just white. These charts also make it clear what the difference is between value and chroma/saturation.

Yellow

Judy, I'm glad you like it! The RYB color wheel is what I started with and studied many different color wheels after but ended up doing a full circle and coming back to this one.

Please disregard the color designations 2Y etc at the botton of the sheets as they're from a Munsell programme. Munsell differs greatly from RYB color wheel. The colors I slected for each color category on these are the ones that match the RYB color wheel. Smile
