 handprint : an artist's color wheel
In additive color mixing, complementary colors are the two monochromatic (single wavelength) lights that can be mixed to produce the perception of white light, or the two surface colors whose reflectance curves can be combined (with a color top) to produce the same result.
The mixing complements for this point are also among the visual complementary colors (middle or deep red), and the fact that red and blue green are such strongly antagonistic colors in color vision (lying at opposite ends of the r/g opponent contrast) means that many of the neutral mixtures are especially dark and intense.
For the green to blue green paints that are visual complements to blue violet, purple or red violet colors, the problem arises from an excess of "red" and "blue violet" reflectance that magentas and red violets all have in common.
