I can successfully mix the colours RGB in the context of light to get different colours but I am not sure how to mix colours in the context of 'paints' ie RYB mixing them all gives brown etc. Could anyone give me some pointers where how/where to look when it comes to mixing 'paint colours'
Thanks very much for anyone who is able to help me
Hey, I think you guys are misunderstanding. Mr. (or is it Mrs.?) luppy ALREADY knows about RGB color mixing, but he/she wants to know more about RYB. This is completely different, as mixing all the colors together gives you BLACK instead of WHITE. I found a website with vast information on this issue, and it is far beyond the scope of what I wish to study. http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color6.html#theoryadd It's more theory than just simple calculations, it looks like. But obviously it can be translated into formulas, as it has been done. [ April 02, 2007: Message edited by: Eric Daly ]
Ok, because it seems like it would take a lot of work (or maybe it's just me) to make a program to do that. If it were my project I'd probably try to find some source code somewhere... Or use a tool that's already been made. I am curious now to find out how some of these programs are coded though. I wonder if there's a complicated algorithm, or if it's pretty simple.
