 theory of colour: Orange is Tertiary
In between these colours may be seen secondary colours that are, perceptually, each a mixture of two of the primaries.
There are also quaternary colours shown, they are a mixture of a tertiary colour and either the primary or secondary colour closest to that tertiary colour in the colour wheel.
A colour mix, as previously discussed, may also be thought of as a mutual pollution of each of the colours in the mix.

An intermediate colour is made by mixing a primary colour with the secondary colour closest to it.
The complementary colour of a primary colour is the colour opposite it (green is the complementary of red, orange for blue, and purple for yellow).

The objective of this introductory lesson was to focus on the use of colour to express mood, building on pupils’ previous knowledge of the colour wheel, and developing it through practical sketchbook activities.
Individual pupils came to the board and filled in the 3 primary colours of pigment [or subtractive primaries], followed by 3 secondary colours, using the fill tool and colour palette available in the whiteboard software.
They were then asked to label the primary, secondary and tertiary colours on the wheel and to explain how tertiary colours are made, dragging the labels and revealing the correct answer to the question after they had reached a consensus verbally.

Colour is a circle of family relationships- some are parents, (primary colours) some siblings, (secondary colours) some cousins (tertiary colours) and some second and third cousins (those weird greyed colours).
Now, turn the original strip into grayscale, and assign different colours to the values present- for instance: the darkest areas will be this dark purple, the next darkest, this rust, the midtones a blue, the mid-lights a lavender, and the lights a cream.
MAKE the colour you think you lack by layering the ones you have- the results are so much richer than if you grab that $4.00 stick of handrolled-between-a-possible-virgen's-thighs and lay in a wide swathe of it.

Traditionally, for convenience, these colours are arranged in a circle of six colours (Indigo is not used), to form a colour circle or 'Colour Wheel'.
This only works if you use a paint colour that 'leans' towards the colour being made, i.e., to make violet you would need to use a red that is 'inclined' towards violet, and a blue that is 'inclined' towards violet.

 Journal of Vision - The status of primary and secondary colours in colour term acquisition, by Pitchford & Mullen
Berlin and Kay (1969) proposed children would acquire basic colour terminology in an order analogous to that by which colour terms are added to languages, as both reflected the physiological structure underpinning perceptual-conceptual colour space.
Accordingly, children should acquire the six primary colour terms (red, green, blue, yellow, fl and white) before the five secondary colour terms (orange, pink, purple, brown and grey).
Interestingly, our data show brown and grey are colours children least prefer, suggesting colour preference and colour conceptualisation are linked in early childhood: an association which may be mediated by a third factor relating to the perceptual organisation of colour space.
