Red, yellow and blue are primary colours, which means they can't be mixed using any other colours. In theory, all other colours can be mixed from these three colours.
Two primary colours mixed together make a secondary colour.
|red + yellow||= orange|
|red + blue||= purple|
|blue + yellow||= green|
Tertiary colours are created by mixing a primary colour and the secondary colour next to it on the colour wheel.
