Primary colors are those that cannot be obtained by mixing any other, in this sense, they are known as single colors. Thus, yellow, blue and red are those that have this characteristic . On the other hand, secondary colors are those that can be obtained by combining two primary colors. For example, orange is secondary, as it is obtained from a mixture of red and yellow; so does green which is achieved by combining yellow and blue. Primary and Secondary Colors
The three primary colors are easily recognized in nature. Red is found in flowers, blue in the sky and yellow in some animals. The set of colors other than the primaries derives from a combination of red, blue and yellow. In other words, by mixing two primary colors we can get a secondary color.
The diversity of tones around us comes from the primary colors, which are visible through the role of light. Colors like purple, orange and green are some examples of so-called minors. Primary and Secondary Colors
When a primary color combines with another secondary color, the end result is a third color. When we combine red and orange we get a reddish orange. When we mix orange with yellow, the result is a yellow-orange.
Color theory and color models
Through the different colors and their different combinations, we are able to create images associated with ideas and feelings . Color is understood as the appearance of each element due to the different qualities of light. It should be noted that our eyes only perceive the colors that are reflected in objects by the action of light. This is due to the rays of the Sun which contains all the colors of the rainbow mixed together; this blend is known as white light. Primary and Secondary Colors
When white light hits a white object , the object does not absorb light, but if this light hits a black object, this object absorbs all the light and so we can see its black color. In short , white is a mixture of all the colors of the rainbow and black is the absence of light. Primary and Secondary Colors
There are two color models: light and pigment
The former are known as RGB because they refer to red, green and blue in English (red, green and blue) and are normally used in virtual media such as computers, tablets, cell phones, etc.
Pigment ones correspond to the abbreviations CMYK in English, which refer to cyan, magenta, yellow and the letter k to black as the key color (the mixture of the first three colors results in black). Primary and Secondary Colors
