Does it look like a rainbow? That is not the main point of the project.
All painting students learned how to mix paint colors. Students even got to choose their own subject matter.
- Three primary colors are: red, yellow, and blue. These are untouchable and cannot be mixed to get either of these hues. Think of Superman!
- The three secondary colors: orange, green, and purple. These are made with the primary colors.
- The six intermediate (tertiary) colors are: red-orange, yellow-orange, blue-green, yellow-green, red-violet, and blue-violet. These are made with the primary and secondary colors.
All 12 colors make up the color wheel. When put together, you, the viewer, can see the color spectrum.
