Instead of thinking of 3 primary colors, let us start to think about 6 primary colors. Maybe primary is not the right word now…. fundamental? basic? Well, if you think of a good name, let me know 🙂
Why would we do this? well it opens up many new possibilities for us. The one most often cited is the mixing of colors. This was well elucidated in the book “Blue and Yellow Don’t Make Green” I will give a brief description of those ideas, but I do recommend the book.
The next point – and this is big – is now we can start thinking of color movement. Instead of thinking of colors as static, think of movement. Movement from one side of a primary or the other. This will open up whole new worlds for us.
