Tertiary Colors in Terra Guatemala

There are six tertiary colors on the Pigment Color Wheel. It is good to remember that each tertiary color is derived from mixing equal amounts of One Primary Color plus an adjoining Secondary Color. So lets see what I discovered while recently visiting Guatemala. Remember that beautiful blue being woven beside Lake Atitlan in an earlier post? Mix that blue with the green at Hotel La Porta in Antigua and you get this incredible blue green.These hanging flowers which look like cascading blue-green orchids were sighted at the Hotel El Pensativo in Antigua.
Blue-violet is made with violet a secondary color and blue a primary color, a color seen in the shy volcano peeking behind another volcano on the edge of Lake Atitlan.
I found red violet on the property of the La Porta Hotel in Antigua. These wonderful blossoms were being swept up by the groundsman.
