Subtractive color is the result of mixing pigments, dyes, or other colorants.
The apparent color of a surface is based on what part of the visible spectrum of light is absorbed versus what portion is reflected back to the viewer.
Since the main concern of this book is the color of interior finishes and not lighting, the focus will be on subtractive, rather than additive, color.
The primary subtractive colors are red, yellow, and blue. These are called primary colors because all other colors are derived from some combination of these three.
When all three primary colors are combined in equal amounts the resulting color is a deep, blackish brown. Note that the primary colors are spaced exactly equidistant from one another on the color wheel.
Midway between each primary color is what is called a secondary color. When two adjacent primary colors are mixed together they form the secondary color found between them on the color wheel.
For example, yellow and blue paint mixed together makes green. The other secondary colors are orange (red and yellow combined) and purple (red and blue combined).
When adjacent primary and secondary colors are mixed, they form tertiary colors. Between each of the six, primary and secondary colors are the tertiary colors consisting of red-orange, orange-yellow, yellow-green, green-blue, blue-purple, and purple-red.
When a very consistent, fine pattern of two distinct colors is viewed from a slight distance, the eye tends to mix the colors optically and derive a third color. This is called partitive color.
The principles of additive color are most critical in theater or another dramatic lighting. For the purposes of interior color design, it is important to understand the effect of artificial lighting on the perception of color.
