Additive color refers to the mixing of colors of light. This example shows how the light from red, green and blue flashlights would appear if shone on a dark wall. The three primaries in light are red, blue, and green. When all of the colors of the spectrum are combined, they add up to white light.
Subtractive color refers to the mixing of colors of pigment, such as paint or the ink in your computer's printer. This type of color is what is used in the art and design world. Printers' primaries—yellow, cyan, and magenta—are typically used by professional designers and printing presses.
To create a full colour image Cyan, Magenta, Yellow are used as well as Black to help create the dark areas Use of four-color printing generates a good final printed result with greater contrast
Now paint the secondary colours: Red, orange and violet
Mix each intermediate color by mixing a primary and a secondary color together. Always start with the lighter or brightest colour. Add the darker; more intense colour next There are six intermediate (tertiary) colors. Blue-violet red-violet Yellow-green Blue-green Yellow-orange red-orange The six intermediate (tertiary) colors (above).
Mix all six intermediate (tertiary) colors. Place them in the appropriate area on the wheel
