COLOUR INFORMATION

All color mixtures come from the three primary colors, yellow, red and blue. When we mix these three primary colors together, we obtain a neutral gray. However by mixing only two of the primary colors together, we obtain colors known as secondary colors. For instance, primary yellow and primary red make the secondary color orange, red and blue make the secondary color purple and blue and yellow make the secondary color green. Clean water should always use the time to get colour

As a visual exercise, place a small swatch of all of your yellows in a line and notice how individual they are. Some look orangish (warm) and others will appear a bit greenish (cooler

We are aware of the green made by mixing yellow and blue are.

1. 2-burnt umber + 1-prussian blue = blackish green. Very dark green for underpainting dark interiors masses of bushes and trees.

2-burnt umber + 1-phthalocyanine blue = blackish green. Also for underpainting

3. burnt sienna + phthalocyanine blue = dark rich green

4. ultramarine blue + cadmium yellow medium = dark, rich green

5. spec of phthalocyanine blue + cadmium yellow deep = dark, rich green

6. cobalt blue + cadmium yellow deep = dark, warm green (more dull than previous mix)

There are many, many more...experiment!

A few mixes for secondary light within trees and foliage:

1. 2 yellow ochre + 1 ultramarine blue = warm middle sunlight value green.

2. 3 naples yellow + 1 cerulean blue = cool middle value sunlight green

3. raw sienna plus ultramarine blue = warm sunlight middle value green

4. raw sienna + spec of phthalocyanine blue = rich middle value sunlight green

5. cobalt blue + spec of cadmium orange = rich middle value green

6. cerulean blue + raw sienna = dull middle value green

There are many, many more...experiment!

1. cadmium yellow medium + spec cerulean blue

2. cadmium yellow light + spec cerulean blue

3. cadmium yellow light + spec manganese blue

4. cadmium yellow light + tiny spec phthalocyanine blue

5. naples yellow + any of the above blues.

1. Cool: zinc yellow + a small amount of any cool blue such as manganese, phthalocyanine blue, prussian blue, cerulean blue, etc.

2. Less cool: zinc yellow + a small amount of any warm blue such as ultramarine, permanent, cobalt, etc.

3. Warm or cool: hansa yellow + spec of warm or cool blue

4. Warm or cool: cadmium yellow pale + spec of warm or cool blue

5. lemon yellow + spec of warm or cool blue

  Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Colors

In the RYB (or subtractive) color model, the primary colors are red, yellow and blue.

The three secondary colors (green, orange and purple) are created by mixing two primary colors.

Another six tertiary colors are created by mixing primary and secondary colors.

Warm and cool colors

The color circle can be divided into warm and cool colors.

Warm colors are vivid and energetic, and tend to advance in space.

Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression.

White, black and gray are considered to be neutral

In paint pigments, pure Yellow, pure Red, and pure Blue are theoretically the only hues that can't be created by mixing any other colors. Printer inks and web primaries are called Yellow, Magenta and Cyan.



 SECONDARY COLORS
When you mix any 2 of the Pure Hues, you get 3 New "children".

YELLOW + RED = ORANGE
RED + BLUE = VIOLET / PURPLE
BLUE + YELLOW = GREEN

TERTIARY COLORS
When you mix the Main Colors with their "children"you get 6 new colors.

YELLOW + ORANGE = YELLOW-ORANGE
RED + ORANGE = RED-ORANGE
RED + VIOLET / PURPLE = RED-PURPLE
BLUE + VIOLET / PURPLE = BLUE-PURPLE
BLUE + GREEN = BLUE-GREEN
YELLOW + GREEN = YELLOW-GREEN
