Here is the 36 color RCW palette showing my own
warm and cool yellow sections to match pigments and light via crystals.
Yellow in pigments can shade to either a green Cool Dark, like in the
RGB/YMC light system. Or to a red warm dark, like my color wheel has it for
pigments. The color pigment Yellow must be on the warm side for the artist to
mix it with any other warm color. By adding a cool yellow/green pigment to a
warm yellow color you would lessen the intensity of the yellow and make it
muddy. Combined pigments are subtractive in intensity while light is additive.
These are the work-arounds.
Yellow to Black in the RGB is very similar to Green's dark in both the RGB and YMCK colorwheels.
The Real Color Wheel, RCW, is different. Yellow goes to Red's warm dark brown not green's cool dark.
As in the Titanium crystal Rutile. Link
