The three primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) cannot be made by mixing two other colors. On the color wheel below, the primary colors are located on the points of the main triangle. Put red at the top.
The three secondary colors (orange, green, and violet) are each a mixture of two primary colors. On the color wheel, the secondary colors are located on the points of the upside-down triangle, between the colors they are made from.
The six tertiary colors (red-orange, red-violet, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-green and blue-violet) are made by mixing a primary color with an adjacent secondary color. On the color wheel, the tertiary colors are located between the primary and secondary colors they are made from.
