I am making a game, and in said game the goal is to mix colors to progress up the level of colors (primary color to secondary, secondary to tertiary) based on the standard RYB color scale seen below.
However, some colors mix and some colors don't (red and blue = purple, red and green = ??). So I want to devise a chart that can easily tell people what colors are allowed to mix and what colors they will produce in a linear fashion.
Here are the complete list that I want to show visually:
- red + blue = purple
- red + yellow = orange
- red + orange = red-orange
- red + purple = red-violet(purple)
- blue + red = purple
- blue + yellow = green
- blue + green = blue-green
- blue + purple = blue-violet(purple)
- yellow + red = orange
- yellow + blue = green
- yellow + green = yellow-green
- yellow + orange = yellow-orange
The reason I don't really like the graph depiction shown above is it doesn't really show what colors are allowed to mix, i.e. red and yellow mix across the triangle, why can't green and orange?(I suppose the lines kind of say this but they're quite confusing) and it doesn't easily depict the progression from primary to secondary to tertiary.
Is there a good way to show this?
P.S. I included duplicates in the list but they can be left out of the visualization if it makes more sense.
