Primary Colors

What are the Primary Colors? Red , Yellow, Blue are the Primary Colors. Primary colors are important in art because when mixed together they can produce every other color in the world (with a little white or black added as well). 

THE BASIC PAINTS:  Limited three color palette.   This is a “dead color”  (black) group.  (I’m choosing to go for very unsaturated.}
1. raw sienna  or yellow ochre for yellow
2. burnt sienna or Indian Red for red
3. French Ultramarine Blue or Cobalt Blue for blue.  If you were working in oil, you could use black because in dilution with white and in the right context it will read as blue.Some black are green when mixed.
If you try this palette send me the painting and I will post it to the blog or put a link to your blog in the comments.
