Colour Theory: Hue and Saturation by Scott Naismith. Published on 14 Feb 2012. Length 10 minutes. 'Lecturer and landscape artist Scott Naismith explains concepts of hue and saturation using the color wheel. Concepts behind complementary colours revealed with a demonstration. This video is intended as an educational aid for artists, graphic designers and illustrators to better understand the concepts of colour balance in terms of hue and saturation in order to assist colour mixing. Reference is made to the work of both Henri Matisse and Mark Rothko. DISCLAIMER: This video shows an inaccurate colour wheel. While it is widely accepted and taught this way, it is massively flawed. If you want to pull the wool from over your eyes, take a look at my video 'The Truth About The Colour Wheel'. RYB are not primary, however all other theories about using colour and saturation are valid.'
