Green and orange combine to become brown. Green and orange, according to Color Matters, are both secondary colors, meaning they are created by combining two basic colors. Any two secondary colors together produce a brown tint ranging from muddy brown to olive brown. The more green that is in the mixture the darker the color will be.
Primary colors are those that cannot be mixed to create other colors. Red, blue, and yellow are examples of primary colors. When red and white are mixed, they create gray. Mixing red with blue produces purple, and mixing red with yellow produces orange. These three colors alone can make any color you want.
Secondary colors are those that can be mixed to create others. Blue-green, gold-orange, and pink-gray are examples of secondary colors. When blue and green are mixed, a new color called turquoise results. This is a tertiary color because it can be made from a combination of two secondary colors (in this case, blue and green). Secondary colors can also be combined to create higher-order colors such as violet (which is created when you mix blue and black). However, the majority of colors on Earth fall into the category of primary or secondary; they can't be made by mixing others.
So basically, brown is a color that is made from combining secondary colors (orange and green).
Brown may be made from the main colors red, yellow, and blue. Because red and yellow combine to become orange, you may create brown by combining blue and orange. Because this mirrors the notion of saturation and brightness and modifies how we perceive the color, the quantity of each hue combined may modify the shade of brown. For example, if you mix equal amounts of red and blue, you will get purple; if you mix equal amounts of yellow and blue, you will get green. Finally, if you mix equal amounts of red, yellow, and blue, you will get white.
A distinct hue of brown Brown and orange are simply different hues of the same color. Brown is created by combining black and orange. So combining orange and brown will produce a dim orange or a brilliant brown, but you will not go anywhere on the color wheel. Orange is the only true color between red and green. So anything that is red but not white, such as tomatoes, strawberries, and raspberries, is orange. And anything that is green but not black, such as grass and trees, is orange. The word "orange" comes from the name of an ancient fruit tree called the pomelo that was grown in Asia and Africa. Today, oranges are grown in many parts of the world including California, Florida, Tunisia, and Chile.
Brown is made up of black and orange. So combining orange with another color that is all too common, black, will always yield brown. Black is the absence of any color, so it is really the opposite of orange which is the most colorful of all the colors. Thus, black is actually the darkest color of its own right and can be used to darken shades of orange and gray. To create a violet add purple to your mixture. To create a blue add yellow or red to your mixture. To create a green add white to your mixture. To create an indigo add cyanide to your mixture.
Oranges have many uses in art and life.
Similarly, what hue are yellow, orange, and blue when combined? When you combine them, you will obtain a brown color. The same holds true for yellow-green, red-violet, yellow-orange, and blue-violet. By now, you've undoubtedly realized that all you need to do to get brown is combine all of the fundamental colors. They don't need to be mixed at all! The fact that they produce a neutral gray instead indicates that there is some hidden chemistry going on as well.
Now, let's look at some concrete examples. If you mix equal amounts of yellow and blue, you will get a mixture of green and purple, which is a darker version of yellow. If you mix equal amounts of blue and orange, you will also get a mixture of green and purple, but this time it's a lighter version of orange. Therefore, both combinations yield the same result: a mixture of green and purple. And since green and purple together make brown, we can conclude that brown is made up of equal parts of yellow, blue, and orange.
As you can see, basic colors can be used in combination to create almost any other color. This means that if you want to design something red, blue, or black, you don't need to purchase any more colors than what's already included in these three colors. You can always make other colors by combining different ratios of the basic colors - thus saving money!
