Primary Colors Part 1 (Cyan and Magenta vs Blue and Red)



Published on 4 years ago

• Turquoise and magenta make bright purple. Turquoise is not “too green” to make purple.
• Blue can be made by mixing turquoise and magenta, so blue cannot be primary.
• Red and blue make dark, muddy mixtures. (Red is the problem here. Any hue of blue or cyan will make a great purple as long as it is mixed with magenta, not red.)
• Turquoise and magenta are the more accurate primary colors. (If you want to split your primaries, you might try two cyans and two magentas; pigments PR122 and PB15:3 are excellent, but not perfect.)

Part 2: https://mp3download.xyz/watch/dbcOcZw4g-I
• You can't make bright turquoise (or green) from blue and yellow.
• Turquoise and yellow make bright green. Turquoise succeeds where blue fails.

Part 3: https://mp3download.xyz/watch/747uREIfnVg
• Red can be made by mixing magenta and yellow, therefore red cannot be primary

You don't need cyan, magenta, and yellow. You just need: cool toned red, cool tone blue, and cool toned yellow.

First, in the cyan-magenta mixtures the color wasn't purple, it was violet and in the blue-red mixtures that color wasn't magenta it was crimson because magenta is the bright purple so when you mix magenta with black it makes purple

Why the dislikes? You're blatantly showing the mess mixing blue and red makes, but i suppose some people are too attached to tradition

Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes And I am taken to a place Where your crystal minds and *MAGENTA* feelings Take up shelter in the base of my spine Sweet like a chica cherry cola

I personally feel that you should have used the same brands of paint to make this experiment better. Edit: Oh wait I just noticed they are the same just different wrappings. Pardon my confusion.

I'm a little confused about Fuchsia and Magenta and while trying to figure it out, I ran across your video. I was first introduced to magenta powder paint in my high school art class a bazillion years ago; however, my confusion has nothing to do with art but rather the color of my Christmas cactus. I just can't determine if it's fuchsia or magenta but either way, it's absolutely beautiful this year! It's a deep, dark, but brilliant, pink. Unfortunately, I can never get a photo to show it's true color because the camera flash or lighting always makes it look purple in the photo. I know fuchsia and magenta are the same in computers but I learned it's not so much in the real world of color. Does Fuchsia have more pink/red and does Magenta have more red/purple? Based on my description of my flower, would you think it might be Fuschia? Or can you please tell me the difference between Fuchsia and Magenta? Thanks! Btw, your video taught me that Cyan is one of my favorite colors of blue. I have a gel pen that writes in that color. :-) Thanks for sharing your video! :-)

Why don't you just use the primary colors to make the colors you need? Just a question.

I don't care what anyone say's there had to be some artist's in the old, and even ancient past that new that these where the primary colors'''!

Wow that red-and-blue purple is so muddy compared to the magenta and cyan one! (Which is fine if that's what you want lol)

Thank you!


Varmelith . 3 years ago

I wonder, what about brown? Do we get brown if we mix magenta, cyan and yellow? and which brown that we can buy is the purest? also I wonder... these darker colors you obtain with blue and red, can we get them just by adding black to those made with cyan and magenta?


Varmelith . 3 years ago

aah thanks for this video.. I was wondering why the colors in my paintings often weren't as bright as I wish they did... probably because I use red and blue !
