Colour/Hue - WHITE

(there is no colour as the light reflects all the spectrum)

If you add white to coloured paint you create a tint of that colour. These colours are known as pastel.

Tint – stays white

Lower value dark grey - add black or shade

Tone – becomes grey - add contrasting colour black.

The perfect grey will have equal amounts of each primary colour.

When you add red green and blue light beams together you make white light.

We see white when there is pure white light reflecting from an object.

If the surface is reflective the colour will seem to be absorbed, and what you see is white.
