The paint colour yellow is one of the primary colours (blue and red are the others)


tint (add white) = pale yellow

low value (add shade or black) = khaki

tone - add a little contrasting colour purple = oatmeal

grey - add a lot of contrasting colour purple

Yellow is a secondary additive light colour.

When you add red and green light beams together you make yellow light.

If white light moves through red and then green glass yellow light will emerge.

We think the properties of a vertical line and a circle relate to those of the colour yellow.

They both can give a warm joyous feeling.

They both derive from a point. They are stable. They are ready for action, hope and adventure.
