Colour Theory is a tool that you can use to help you plan better paintings. It is not difficult to learn and it soon becomes very natural for you to think in terms of colour balances and how they benefit your work.
When planning your painting you can think about the colour relationships and identify if your painting falls into a Complimentary pallette or an Analogous palette. You can then bring the best out of your painting in your colour choices.
You will then find yourself noticing complimentary colour relationships in the natural world around you, and the more you do that, the better decisions you will make as an artist.
