Section B: Color Definitions

Define briefly and discuss in sentence form the following aspect of color:

Tertiary Color

A tertiary color is produced by mixing a primary color with an adjacent secondary color. Pure tertiary colors are located halfway between the primary and secondary colors on the color wheel. With them, they form the common twelve section color wheel. All colors on a continuous spectrum color wheel other than six primaries and secondaries can be considered tertiary colors of varying mixtures.

Tertiary colors are sometimes called neutral colors, from the older convention of tertiary being any combination of all three primary colors. These colors, which include all the browns, are not on the color wheel.
