What Color Is Produced When Red and Yellow Are Mixed?

Orange is created by combining the colours red and yellow. Because orange is a secondary colour, it is created by combining two primary colours. Red, blue, and yellow are the three basic hues.

Three additional hues are present: orange, purple, and green. A tertiary colour is created when one of the secondary colours is combined with the main colour that sits exactly next to it on the colour wheel.

Red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red-violet are the six tertiary hues. From the tertiary level, colours can continue to be blended to create a limitless range of various hues.
