I’m working on an artistic painting application and I’m trying to offer mixing in the RYB color space for the users.

Everything concerning color in my program is using RYB values. I implemented the conversion RYB to RGB which was introduced by Gossett and Chen in their paper “Paint Inspired Color Mixing and Compositing for Visualization”. I also accomplished to figure out a good method to mix colors in RYB.

In order to integrate additional functionallity, i need to have a RGB to RYB conversion. If anybody knows how to do this, or would know how to inverse the RYB2RGB conversion, let me know. I appreciate every hint.

It looks like this is a supplement to the paper referenced.

You could probably model it in CMYK (Subtractive) with hues of Cyan and Magenta shifted.
