Color wheel

One of the exercises for the Studio Journal class was doing a color wheel. Since my last color wheel for City & Guilds was some time ago I painted a new one. I keep forgetting the correct applications for terms like "split complementary", so I decided to enter the key words to the color wheel and glue this into my journal, so I will have them handy.
Unfortunately the paper from the journal I bought is not heavy enough to tolerate watercolors. I tried a wash for the first page and the paper buckled and stayed that way even after it dried. I think I will have to glue several pages together, try gesso or glue more heavyweight paper into the journal since I want to have some color experiments in there, too.
