PRIMARY COLOURS Primary Colours: The 3 primary colours are red, yellow and blue. They are three colours that can't be made by mixing any other colours, but are used to make secondary colours.
SECONDARY COLOURS • Each secondary colour is made by mixing two primary colours (in equal amounts) closest to it on the colour wheel. The three secondary colours are: green, purple, and orange.
TERTIARY COLOURS Tertiary colours are created by mixing a primary and a secondary colour. There are six tertiary colours, and their names all start with a primary colour. Red-orange, Yellow-green, Blue-violet, and Red -violet.
Involves the use of one hue. The hue can vary in value, black to create different shades and white can be added to create different tints. Analogous colour schemes are created by using colours that sit beside each other on the colour wheel, with colours slightly different from one another. (i. e. Yellow-orange, Orange, Red-Orange) They are colours that are opposite from each other from the colour wheel.
The CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) colour model is used for print, they are pigment based (ink/toner), and all the colours combined together creates black. The RGB (red, green, blue) colour model is used for screens such as computer and television, therefore its light based. RGB combined creates white.
