These are the colors created when mixing two primary colors in a given color space (RGB or CMYK). In effect, the mixing of two RGB colors results in either Cyan, Magenta or Yellow, and the mixing of two CMY colors results in Red, Green or Blue (Y+M=R, C+M=B, Y+C=G). However, secondary colors commonly refer to the “inbetween” colors of Orange (Yellow plus some Magenta), Violet (Cyan plus some Magenta) and Green (Yellow plus Cyan).
