Color wonders !
Nature — the smartest painter of us all ! and I am really intrigued by the play of colors and would like to share some information with you all.
Do you know from where flamingos ger their color ?They get their colour from their food. They love algae, which are
rich in carotenoid pigments. This is deposited in the feathers, and creates the hue.
The colour wheel created by Newton is a logically arranged sequence of pure hues. This traditional colour wheel uses the three primary colours – red, yellow and blue.
There are three secondary colours formed by mixing the primary colours.
Red + Yellow = Orange
Blue + Yellow = Green
Red + Blue = Purple
Mixing primary and secondary colours produces tertiary colours like magenta and cyan.
May your life be colorful forever !
