Learn About The Different Definitions of Color Groups

What are Primary, Secondary Tertiary and Complimentary Colors?

Primary colors are red, yellow and blue. Red, blue and yellow are colors that can not be made... meaning you can not mix colors to get red, blue and yellow colors. However, you can mix primary colors with other primary colors to CREATE secondary colors.

Secondary colors are colors CREATED after mixing or blending primary colors. Primary colors yellow and blue make green. Primary colors blue and red make purple and red and yellow make orange.

Additive and subtractive secondary colors are when black or white are mixed with a, or a handful, of secondary colors.

Tertiary colors is the result of blending or mixing primary and secondary colors together. The results of mixing primary and secondary colors together will create a lighter or darker hue.
