Knowing the color wheel can really make a difference in your art work. By using colors that are next to each other on the color wheel you are able to create a mood for your piece. When you use opposite colors (also known as complimentary colors) on the color wheel, you are able to really make things "pop." Also, knowing what colors we can mix to make new colors can be very helpful.
