What color do you get when you mix blue and green?


Mixing the colors blue and green makes cyan. Bluish-green in its appearance, cyan is one of the three primary colors included on the subtractive CMYK color model. The subtractive CMYK color model is widely used with colored printers and in colored printing more generally.

Cyan is located at a midpoint between blue and green on the color wheel. The complementary color of cyan, because of its location on the color wheel, is red. Mixing property intensities of cyan and red on a blank background produces white. Similarly, the removal of the color red from white light produces cyan. The wavelength of cyan is between 490 and 520 nanometers.
