The color magenta, which is a primary color according to Goethe's theory of color subtraction, is produced when blue and red are combined. This theory works on the principle that the components of white light can be subtracted by the secondary colors to create other colors. However, black color is produced when the secondary colors subtract all the components of white light.Know More
Newton's theory of color is based on the principle of color addition, unlike Goethe's theory, which is based on the principle of color subtraction. Newton's theory led to the conclusion that blue, red and green colors are the primary colors, and are known as the additive primary colors while Goethe's theory led to the conclusion that cyan, yellow and magenta colors are the primary colors that are known as subtractive primary colors.
The application of these two theories of color is very common. In media production the sources of color that are used by the color print are based on the principle of color subtraction as the ambient light illuminates the paper. On the other hand, color sources that have an independent illumination, such as a computer monitor, are based on the principle of color addition.Learn More
The simplest way to produce a brown color is to mix a primary color with its secondary color, such as adding blue to orange, purple to yellow, or green to red.Full Answer >
Red is a primary color, so it is not usually possible to produce it by mixing two or more colors. However, print technology uses alternative primary colors, and an overlapping of magenta and yellow produces red.Full Answer >
Magenta is made from combining red and blue. Magenta is part of the subtractive primary color set, which also includes yellow and cyan. The additive primary color set contains red, blue and green.Full Answer >
Blue is a primary color and cannot be created by mixing other colors. A light blue paint is made by mixing blue with enough white to reach the desired tint. Adding blue to a light green paint will produce a green-blue tint.Full Answer >
