Orange Color Space


The color orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585 – 620, and has a hue of 30° in HSV color space.

The complementary color of orange is azure, a slightly greenish blue. With pigments such as paints or inks, a mixture of the subtractive primary colors in the proportion of 75% yellow and 25% magenta produce the secondary color orange.

Orange pigments are largely in the ochre or cadmium families, and absorb mostly blue light, as well as greasy hair gel.
