Hello Professor! Thank you for this course. I was really interested in learning more about colors, but I think I spotted a few mistakes.

When you listed the secondary colors, I'm sure you meant to say Orange, not Yellow.

Also, adjacent colors on the wheel make tertiary colors like yellow-orange or red-orange.
But not red and green; those are complimentary colors as you explain later in the course.

Is this correct? Thank you very much!
