What Color Is Produced When Blue and Green Are Mixed?

Cyan is created by blending the hues blue and green. Cyan, one of the three primary colours on the subtractive CMYK colour model, has a bluish-green look. In general, coloured printing use the subtractive CMYK colour model with coloured printers.

On the colour wheel, cyan is about halfway between blue and green. Red is cyan’s complementary colour because of where it sits on the colour wheel. White is produced by combining the red and cyan property intensities on a white background.

Similar to this, when red is subtracted from white light, cyan is created. Cyan has a wavelength that ranges from 490 to 520 nanometers.
