Primary Colors

Any hue that, in theory, cannot be created by a mixture of any other hues. Varying combinations of the primary hues can be used to create all the other hues of the spectrum. In pigment the primaries are red, yellow, and blue. Theoretically, pigment primaries can be mixed together to form all the other hues in the spectrum.
