Panel #8 – Color Mixing: Adding Yellow

The same pattern holds true for primary yellow. As yellow is added to a color, the resulting mixture is closer to the Y100 plane. Once the Y100 plane is reached, adding more yellow will move the resulting color towards the yellow corner.

The diagram at the top of panel #8 shows yellow being added to red, green and blue (in separate operations). Look at the blue-yellow path and notice the color mixtures migrate from the Y0 plane to the Y100 plane. The resulting colors move from the plane containing "no yellow" to the plane in which yellow is maximized. Once the Y100 plane is reached, additional yellow simply moves the color closer to the yellow cube. Because red and green begin on the Y100 plane, adding yellow merely causes these colors to move towards the yellow cube directly.
