The seven primary colors

The seven primary colors: Rainbow hypothesis

Colors had been with us since the beginning of time. Through the years, white, black, colorless and light has been questioned in an open mind. Where does it come from, why is it not included in the primary colors, how to make white, black, colorless and light from the three primary known colors? This is a revision for the primary known colors. The seven basic components of a color may contain red, blue, yellow, white, black, colorless and light. This research also shows secondary and tertiary colors. This is for educational purpose that may lead to other discoveries.

Keywords: black colorless light primary colors white


A careful analysis through the broad spectrum has brought the author this research.

We cannot debate the application of the three primary colors and yet we question white, black, colorless and light as an application.

The purpose of this paper is to show the occurrence of white, black, colorless and light as primary colors to visualize other colors.

We use tables to signify the occurrence of secondary colors, so on and so forth …

Review of Related Literature

Primary colors can also be conceptual, either as additive mathematical elements of a color space or as irreducible phenomenological categories in domains such as psychology andphilosophy. (Beran 2014) [1]

Materials and Methodology

We added the primary colors which results to all known colors.

For secondary Colors, we make a table by adding the row to column resulting to this table:

Sample red + blue is purple, so on and so forth…

Partial tertiary table as follows


1. Adding the three known basic colors did not produce black, white, colorless and light.

2. The results showed the table for secondary colors and partial table for tertiary colors.


1. White, black colorless and light must be added to the primary colors.

2. A continuous addition of these colors produces the desired color.

3. Saturation may affect color integrity.


This is a revision of the previously known primary colors. So it brings us to red, blue, yellow, white, black, colorless
