I think what may be confusing is that the RGB separations are negatives,
or more familiarly "complements." So they're printed with the
complementary color, as above. (Of course these aren't exactly the
"complements" they taught us in Art 101, but they work for repro, tho I
forget why... as I recall it's because it's projection, not reflection (?)
