Subtractive Colour
Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are the primary subtractive colours. When light falls on a surface, certain wavelengths are absorbed (subtracted) and those reflected back, produce the colour you perceive. Subtractive colours are the sensation of colour seen in ink on paper. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) is used in print media, compared to additive colour (RGB) used in multimedia design.
