About RYB color model

RYB is a color model based on Red Yellow and Blue base colors. This color space is not very popular as there are many colors deffined via RGB or CMYK that can not be converted to RYB. However this color model is good for physical mixture of pigments. So this color model may be usefull for model painters and artists who uses acrylic and especially oil paints.

RGB Hex codes for RYB primary colors are:
  Red: #FE2712
  Yellow: #FEFE33
  Blue: #0247FE
