Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Colors

Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Colors

Color Theory is based on the availability of pure primary hues with which one can mix new colors. In the real world, many art supplies are not pure hues, instead being mixed from many colors. Tertiary Colors are created by mixing a Primary Color with a Secondary Color, forming the colors that sit between.

Having an understanding of mixing color can help you achieve the exact hue that you need. Do you make art? Share your work of art in the comments below or with the hashtag #wfmaartstories #wfmamsutexas
