The tertiary colours
The tertiary colours. are made from combining the primary and secondary colours into equal parts.
A good way to remember the names is to place the primary name before the other colour.
For example primary red before the tertiary colour then the secondary colour. Doing this you will be able to name every tertiary colour easily.
So the when mixing the primary colour red with the secondary colour purple, the tertiary colour produced is called 'red-purple'.
