Color Wheel Mixing

Students created an abstract painting that has a color wheel hidden inside of it. They were given only red, yellow, blue, and black paint to complete this assignment. Since they were given the three primary colors they were able to mix all of the other colors. Once their color wheel was done they disguised it by surrounding it with lots of colors, lines and patterns. Can you find the color wheel in each picture?
