Best Answer

If you are using pigments, which are referred to as subtractive colors, like paint, crayons, etc, then you would get a shade of brown.

But, if you are using light, which are referred to as additive colors, like the ones used for TV screens, then you would get the color yellow.

When using acrylic paints, if you use a 3:1 ratio of red to green using cadmium red and phthalo green, you will get gray by adding varying amounts of white to it.

If you mix paint of those colours, you will get a brown-black mixture. This is because paints work through absorbing certain colours of light, and mixing all three will result in a mixture which absorbs all of the colours and reflects none or very little. If you mix light of those colours, red and green form yellow, so you would get a yellow colour. Yellow because red + green = yellow and yellow + yellow = yellow.
