Full Answer

The primary colors are red, blue and yellow and cannot be created through mixing. The secondary colors, created by an equal mix of two primary colors, are violet, green and orange. On the chart, each secondary color is centered between its two components. The final six colors are intermediate paint colors, an equal mix of one primary color and the secondary color next to it. The names of the intermediate colors are simply combinations of the two colors. The intermediate colors are centered between their components on the chart.
