What Is Color Mixing?
If there were no primary colors to mix with each other, there would be no color combination. In this case, we can boldly say that the colors were not as diverse today. Mixing primary colors with each other creates secondary, tertiary colors and more diverse color combinations, which includes the creation of more new colors. So that today there are 10,000,000 colors in the world, of which only 7,000,000 are visible to the human eye.
In addition to physical color mixing, there are two main types of color mixing. One is additive (like just with physical colors and paint tubes) and the other is subtractive (like what happens in sunlight, which consists of 7 colors but it is white). In both types, you can have any color by only mixing three primary colors. But for you to be faster, in dopely color combining tool, you can select any color with a handy color picker, as your primary material.
The combination of physical colors is one of those things that you can master by learning the color wheel, and that teaching this mixing to children is also more understandable.
There are threeprimary colors: blue, red, and yellow. From the equal mixture of each of the primary colors,secondary colorsare created: green, orange, and purple. Then, by mixing the secondary colors,third colors (triatry colors)are created: Vermilion, Magenta, Violet, Teal, Amber, Chartreuse. And all the other 64 million colors can be created by using only primary colors.
Additive Mixing (RGB Color Mixer)
If two beams of light are placed on top of each other, their colors are mixed additively.In additive mixing, there are three main colors of light: red, green, and blue. With an equal mixture of each of these primary light colors, white is obtained.
In this way, yellow is obtained by mixing red and green light. With a mixture of green and blue, cyan is obtained. Finally, magenta is obtained by mixing blue and red. All three are secondary colors of light.
One of the most common uses of this mixture is in TVs, computer monitors, and smartphone monitors to produce a wide range of colors.
Subtractive Mixing (CMYKColor Mixer)
The three main colors available in subtractive mixing are cyan, magenta, and yellow. With an equal combination of each of these primary colors, black is obtained. In this way, blue is obtained by mixing cyan and magenta. By mixing magenta and yellow, red is obtained. And finally, with the mixing of yellow and magenta, green is obtained. Which are all three secondary colors of this mixture.
This mixture is widely used in color printing or coloring on paper or other white substrates, combining a small number of ink colors or other colors.
As it turns out, the secondary colors of each additive and subtractive mixture are actually the other primary colors.
Why Should We Use Color Mixing in Our Work?
1. We can diversify our work by mixing colors:
- Using a solid color in a work, such as painting or drawing, often causes frustration and eye strain. But despite the color mixing, there is variety, so that even if you use different tones of the same color, the volume of this frustration will be less.
2. We can create a sense of readability and space by mixing colors:
- By mixing colors, depth and space can be shown. So that we can turn a two-dimensional image into a three-dimensional one. And we can guide the reader's eye to the main goal and subject in a painting.
3. We will see the mixing result in a stimulation which means less waste of colors
