Artist's Description

Before the discovery of CMY*, at least as far back as Goethe, the best primary colors were thought to be red, yellow, and blue. Mixing these pigments in equal amounts produces Orange, Green, and Violet.

The colour wheel is a colour-theory staple that artists and designers refer to all the time. The visible spectrum of light is split into 12 distinct colour-wavelength sectors. Painters consider these twelve colours to be: I) PRIMARY COLOURS: RYB (red–yellow–blue). II) SECONDARY COLOURS: Mixing the RGB pigments in equal amounts produces Orange, Green, and Violet hues. III) INTERMEDIATE SECONDARIES: These exist at equal distances from the main Secondary colors and are traditionally called: Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, Yellow-Green, Blue-Green, Blue-Violet, Red-Violet.

*CMY colour model (or CMYK model) (process color, four color) is a subtractive color model, used in color printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself. CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black).
