Color: Part 2 – WARM & COOL colors

There are gazillions of colors Fortunately for us, they can be divided into just a few color families, and every color pretty much has just three main attributes:

HUE = the name of the color like BLUE, ORANGE or GREEN.
SATURATION =  is how sharp or dull the color appears.
VALUE =  is the SHADE (darkness) or TINT (lightness) of a color.

COOL colors have a calming effect, Things seem to move into the background with cooler colors, like a blue sky.

WARM colors are more attention grabbing, they make the object seem closer or come forward in your artwork.

Have fun coloring!
