• Colors opposite each other are complementary.
For example, cyan is the complement of red.
• Each color is a combination of the colors on
either side of it.
• The additive primaries green, blue, and red
separate (filter) the subtractive primaries cyan,
magenta, and yellow from white light.
• By absorbing green, blue, and red from
light reflected through transparent ink on white
paper, cyan, magenta, and yellow produce color that
can be reproduced on a printing press.
