#5 Colors without CMY
The 64 colors in the COLORCUBE Puzzle are unique
mixtures of cyan, magenta and yellow. White is 0% cyan, 0% magenta and 0% yellow; black is
100% cyan, 100% magenta and 100% yellow. All of the other colors are just different
combinations of the three primaries. The CMY label on each cube indicates the colors
formula AND its location in the puzzle. (This observation is critical to the solution
presented in panel #11).
Find all of the cubes with CMY labels containing "C0" and you will have "colors without cyan" as in the top diagram in panel #5. The 16 colors that contain "M0" in their CMY label comprise the "colors without magenta" and the colors with "Y0" in their label are the "colors without yellow". Notice that when only two of the three primaries are used, the color space is limited to a single face or plane (two dimensions). What happens when the missing primary is added? The entire plane literally shifts into the third dimension.
It is this shift that makes the COLORCUBE a worthwhile model to study in order to understand the intricacies of color.
Panels #6-8 are exercises in color mixing which offer insight into navigating the COLORCUBE. They feature mixing primary colors with the colors introduced in panel #1. Colorized linear progressions and COLORCUBE diagrams are used to illustrate each combination. Mix your own paints to prove that the full range of colors shown can be achieved.
