Do Yellow and Blue Make Green?

Everything you knew about color mixing is wrong.

Red, yellow, and blue are the three primary colors, the painter’s building blocks. You can mix every other color out of this trio. At least, that’s what they taught me in art class; combine any two primaries, and you get a “secondary” color, which lies between the primaries on the color wheel.
