The colour wheel is the basis of colour theory for the visual arts, because it shows the relationship between colours. Colours that look good together are called a colour harmony. Artists and designers use these to create a particular look or feel. Invented in 1666 by Isaac Newton, who mapped the colour spectrum onto a circle which has been used as teaching aid.
