What are the three paint colors used for color subtraction?
Keeping this in view, what is color subtraction?
Subtractive color mixing is the kind of mixing you get if you illuminate colored filters with white light from behind, as illustrated at left. The commonly used subtractive primary colors are cyan, magenta and yellow, and if you overlap all three in effectively equal mixture, all the light is subtracted giving black.
One may also ask, what colors of light are reflected by the color magenta? Cyan pigment will absorb the red and reflect green and blue or cyan colored light. Magenta is a combination of red and blue, without any green. And yellow is seen when red and green light are combined.
Moreover, what is Colour addition and subtraction?
The primary colors are red, green and blue. When mixed, the phenomenon is described as addition of colors. If instead of taking red, blue and green, we join cyan, magenta and yellow (resulting from the mixture of the three above) the result is the primary colors plus black. This is called subtraction of colors.
What color does blue absorb?
