Color Theory: Mixing Paint Colors : Color Theory: Mixing Secondary Colors


The next grouping of colors on the color wheel
are called the secondary colors. And, if this makes it easy to remember, you mix each of
the two primaries together and you will get a secondary. So, and I’m sure you’ve found
this out one way or another. But basically when you mix yellow and red together you get
orange. Now, what happens though is that sometimes one color is stronger than another color and
you have to, you can’t put in fifty-fifty because a lot of times the darker color will
overwhelm the yellow. In this case I think I’ve got the, I’ve got it about right. So,
I’m going to put in my yellow, my orange, in between the red and the yellow, the two
colors that went to make it up. Now, of course you can buy this. You can buy orange in a
tube, but right now just want to get the basics down and to do that we’re just going to mix
our secondary and tertiary colors. So, there we go. There’s orange. Going to do the same,
red and blue make purple. So we’re going to get some red down there and stick in a little
bit of blue.
