Primary Colors: red, yellow and blue

Primary colors are red, yellow and blue. They are the three pigment colors that cannot be made by mixing any other colors. These colors are mixed to create all other colors and can be combined with white or black to create tints (lighter tones) and shades (darker hues) of these colors.

Secondary Colors: orange, green and purple

Orange, green and purple are secondary colors. They are created by mixing two of the three primary colors together.

Complementary Colors

Complementary colors are two colors on opposite sides of the color wheel, which when placed next to each other make both appear brighter. The complementary color of a primary color (red, blue and yellow) is the color you get by mixing the other two (red+blue=purple; blue+yellow=green; red+yellow=orange). So, the complementary color for red is green, for blue it's orange, and for yellow it's purple.
