Burgundy is a deep reddish brown colour that is called after the Burgundy wine. It is a combination of red, brown, with a hint of blue. The combination between the red and the blue gives burgundy its purple undertone. Brown is created by mixing any primary colour with its complimentary colour.
Burgundy can be formed with a range of red, brown, and blue proportions. More red can be added to make a brighter burgundy, while more blue can be used to make a darker tone. Red and green or blue and orange combinations make a better brown base for burgundy than yellow and purple combinations.
