Do you know the color red and blue make?
Lots of people do not even know that colors can be added to give another color.
It is both interesting science and art that will leave you with some wonders and excitement.
Very briefly, we will be looking at what color red and blue make.
Make sure you read through to understand both the science and the art.
When it comes to color combination, there are two major ways to take a look at it.
The way you view it is what will determine the outcome you will expect.
So, in this piece, we shall take a look at the two concepts and see what happens in both situations when red and blue colors mix.
The resultant effects in both cases.
In fine art, we were made to understand that colors can be combined to get other colors.
Interestingly colors have classification and the color mixing is based on those classifications.
The classifications include primary, secondary and tertiary colors.
Primary colors include blue, red, and yellow while secondary colors include Green, purple, and orange.
In fine art, adding colors is basically about color pigments.
When you add two primary colors together, you will get a secondary color.
An example is yellow added to red will give orange.
A tertiary color is gotten when one secondary color is added to a primary color.
For instance, yellow plus green will give yellow-green.
This is well explained in the color wheel.
So, adding red and blue together will give a secondary color because both blue and red are primary colors.
This combination will produce a purple color.
Purple is a secondary color that originates from the pigments of blue and red colors.
The other two secondary colors are orange and green.
I believe this is well understood as far as the color pigment is concerned.
If you are talking about the combination of red and blue colors in line with the light spectrum, the outcome is different.
For the visible light spectrum, the mixture of blue and red colors will produce a magenta color.
In the light spectrum, both blue and red colors are primary colors.
Magenta as a color absorbs green light.
Red and blue colors are visible manifestations of electromagnetic radiation.
Since they are primary colors, it means they can’t be created.
They can be combined with others to create another light spectrum.
For the color to be visible to human eyes, the electromagnetic radiation must have emitted what looks like those colors.
Electromagnetic radiation comes with different frequencies and wavelengths and that will determine how far it travels with which it is transmitted by particles and waves.
These are reflected in the energy levels.
You need to understand the science behind the light to be able to understand the color mixture.
Take time to read further about the science of the colors spectrum.
