Note: You'll notice that I've listed both black and white as containing or representing all colours. Here's why:


In light, white is made up of all the colours of light, while black is the absence of light.


In pigment or paint, white is the absence of colour. But if you mix all the colours together, theoretically you'll get black.



When white is added to a colour, it raises the vibrations of that colour. For instance---Red is a passionate, lustful colour. Add white and you get pink. Pink is a higher expression of red, producing romantic love and affection. White also seems to add gentleness to a colour.

Adding grey subdues the action of the colour.

Black does the same, but also darkens it (obviously.) For instance--- Blue is calm and peaceful, but a dark dull blue is almost tranquillising.
