RYB colors mixing guide

RYB Color Mixing

RYB (red, yellow, blue) is a set of primary colors in subtractive color mixing system. They find their most frequent application in art, design, and painting.

In the 18th century, the ryb color wheel became the foundation of the color vision theories as the fundamental sensory qualities that are blended in the perception of all physical colors and equally in the physical mixture of pigments or dyes.

In the process of subtractive color mixing, such as in painting, the combination of all colors (RYB) results in black.

Utilizing advanced algorithms and user-friendly interfaces, Mimi Panda's RYB color mixing online tool allows artists, designers, and enthusiasts to accurately dissect complex color blends, enabling precise color analysis and creative exploration.

RYB color wheel

The Online RYB (Red, Yellow, Blue) color wheel above illustrates the primary colors used in traditional subtractive color mixing. It features red, yellow, and blue equidistantly spaced around the circumference, forming a triangular relationship.

Secondary colors: orange, green, and purple — occupy the spaces between the primaries, showcasing their blends. The RYB color wheel serves as a fundamental tool in art, design, and education for understanding color relationships and creating harmonious compositions.
