Primary Colors: the Red, Yellow and Blue of It

Primary Colors: the Red, Yellow and Blue of It

Primary. Colors.  Those that cannot be created by any combination of two or more existing colors. Those from which all other (subtractive) colors are created: Red. Yellow. Blue.

The blue here is a bit aqua…(has some yellow in it, reducing its primary blue-ness)…but the Blue, Red, Yellow concept remains the same.

Red, Blue, Yellow (with a bit of orange hue thrown in) are bookish interspersed with black and white.

Blue, Yellow and Red grace a table setting, flanked by silver, white, gray.

Primary Colors…from whence all hue begins…and the first color story.
