Color Combinations

Subtractive primaries

Color absorbtion

Light diffusion 



Subtractive primary colors are important in the mixing pigments in paint or ink, in color printing, color photography and overlapping multiple filters. The white light can be thought as the sum of the three additive primary colors Red, Green and Blue. However, when a filter or colored pigment is illuminated by white light, we can observe changes. You will be testing how colors change through filtering.
