Warm vs. Cool Colors

By warms and cools, I mean those versions of a color that lean toward one temperature or the other one the color wheel. For instance, a Cadmium Red Medium or similar hue leans more toward orange (warmer), while Quinacridone Red and Permanent Alizarian Crimson lean toward purple (cooler).

Being aware of temperature makes color mixing much more versatile, as well as simpler. Colors can be more intense, cleaner, or fresher when warms are mixed with warms, and less intense, more subtle, or grayed when warms and cools are used together. Get to know the possibilities.
