Optical color mixing
is a phenomenon that happens when
a viewer perceives color in an image as a result of two or more colors that are positioned next to, or near each other
The perceived color is not actually on the surface. Instead, the color that the viewer perceives is what color(s) would result from the mixing of the colors that are actually on the surface.
In other words, if yellow and blue are placed on a surface in close enough proximity to one another, the viewer may perceive that the color green is present – even though it is not on the surface at all.
