Blue is the colour between violet and green on the spectrum of visible light. In painting and traditional colour theory, blue is one of the three primary colours of pigment, along with red and yellow, which can be mixed to form a wide gamut of colours. Red and blue mixed together form violet. Blue and yellow together form green.
