Red, green, and blue are the three primary colours in additive mixing. The result is dark in the absence of colour or when no colours are visible. The result is white if all three main colours are visible. Yellow is created when red and green are combined. Magenta is created when red and blue are combined. The colour cyan is created when blue and green are combined.
Green is a secondary colour whereas yellow is a primary colour. When yellow and green are combined, the result is a colour known as yellow-green. It will become more yellow as you add more yellow, and it will become more green as you add more green.
When you blend any two neighbouring primary colours, you obtain secondary colours. Yellow is created by combining red and green, magenta is created by combining red and blue, and cyan is created by combining green and blue.
Also, what is the combination of the colours blue and yellow? Images like the one below indicate that the primary are red, yellow, and blue, and that yellow and blue produce green. This is sometimes depicted as a colour wheel: for example, some people believe that yellow and blue produce green. Other solutions claim that yellow and blue combine to form black.
Why Do Yellow And Green Make Blue?
Green is created by mixing blue and yellow pigments. Long wavelengths are reflected by yellow paint, while short wavelengths are absorbed. When blue and yellow paint are blended together, the combination appears green because they both reflect middle (green-appearing) wavelengths.

What Does Red Yellow Blue And Green Make?
The result of mixing the three fundamental colours of light in equal proportions is neutral (gray or white). The effect of mixing red and green lights is yellow. The colour cyan is created when green and blue lights are combined. Magenta is created when blue and red lights are combined.
Ways To Increase Your Green Palette Even More
In addition, depending on your medium and picture, you might add white or water down your greens for even more alternatives.
While I’ve included some three-color alternatives, many of the two-color options can be modified by adding a complementary third colour. You’ll get even more greens or darker shadow areas as a result of this.
Another alternative is to purchase a variety of greens, to begin with, or additional blues, etc. This broadens your options even more.
You can make use of yellow (not shown in this post). There are a variety of yellows, and by combining them, you may create nearly endless greens.
Make Green Without Yellow But Using Green
It’s been said that if you start with a tube or pan-green, you’ll only obtain drab murky greens. That does not appear to be the case. This method of mixing offers a wide selection of greens to pick from. Some are more natural or muted, which is frequently what you desire. Others, on the other hand, are more colorful.

Step 1: Free Stuff
This table was given to me for free. I was the happy recipient after it was advertised on freecycle. It had been painted multiple times, according to the advertisement. It was a drab brown with a few flecks of a lovely scarlet shining through and some crazed scribbling by the previous owner’s child. However, there were several large chips and peeling areas that indicated I’d have to repaint at some point.
I was so inspired by a pinterest post of a table painted in the shape of a colour wheel that I decided to start painting this table this week (school starts next week- eek!) I had to dismantle it to put it into my small SUV because it was quite enormous. Because I’ll have to move it again, I didn’t/don’t want to put it together until I get it at school. So I did my painting in my cluttered garage. Please accept my apologies. This is the truth.

Step 2: Clean, Prime, Sand And Maybe Prime Again?
- Clean and dry your work surface first.
- To roughen the surface paint and smooth out any chipped areas, sand the area.
- Wipe/wash one more, then dry. (Unless you live in the desert, in which case the humidity is sucked away like money)
- Sand. If necessary, reprimand. (I did, as you can see below.)
- Sand once more to remove all of the brushstrokes.
I also attempted to resurrect some primer I had in the garage. It had become quite stiff. So I got out my beloved drill and paint mixer and mixed in some water, and it sort of worked, but when I started painting, I saw some thicker chunky spots. After all, it’s not the best idea. I recently realised that you should not store used paint in your garage, especially if you live in a hot and humid climate like Houston. I’ve kept it out there (the paint), partly because I don’t have enough space inside for it without being tacky and utilising it for shelving (you remember the old paint can with a board shelf you had in college—oops, I’m dating myself now!) Since a large chunk of the paint was handed to me, I suppose I haven’t lost anything if I lose it because it solidifies. Meanwhile, for those of you who are concerned about the environment, I’ve got the primer (together with a second can I found in similar shape) ready for the hazardous waste collection. I didn’t toss it in the garbage. It’s amusing how paint is categorised similarly to batteries.
Step 5: Neutral Gray/grey- How Do You Spell That Word?
Someone gave me a number of paint samples, so I have a lot of them. I looked everywhere for a light gray/grey. (Can you tell me how to spell that word? There is no agreement, and when my students tell me I’ve spelled it incorrectly, I respond, “in what country?”)
Grey is a hue that is considered neutral. When you combine compliments, you get grey (colors opposite on the colour wheel or the highest contrast, like red and green, blue and orange, yellow and violet). Grey is ideal for providing the greatest backdrop for your colors— it’s Switzerland with the added benefit of having no opinion. It will not prefer blue to yellow. Grey will simply draw attention to both!
Photographers use the term “neutral” to describe a mid-gray tone. Grey, on the other hand, is a fantastic hue.
I changed my design while painting the grey. (I have permission to do so; it is my design.) A 4″ paint roller was my smaller paint roller. With my string compass, I had roughly measured a 4 inch rule. However, when I was rolling out the paint, I noticed I had a second compass-style measuring device. So I just marked my first colour line using the edge of my paint roller. I wasn’t too worried about the line’s flawlessness. (I’m attempting to convince my students to let go of their worry of being perfect.) So, if I wasn’t flawless, it was better for their learning to see how I dealt with my flaws.
