How to Use Color:
Working with color to achieve intended results can be a challenge, but it can also be fun! An effective color scheme can make a room feel warm and inviting, a graphic design able to attract attention, or a poster to recall days gone by. Before learning what colors to use in order to achieve the best results, one must first understand some basic color terms.
Each primary, secondary, and tertiary hue is at a level of full saturation, or brightness, which means that there is no black, white, or gray added. Color is described in terms of value, which is the lightness or darkness of a color, or the relative amount of white or black in a hue. White added in increments to any of the twelve colors results in lighter values of the hue called tints. For example, pink is a tint of the primary color red. The incremental addition of black or gray to a hue results in darker values of the hue known as shades. A shade of red is burgundy or maroon. The color chart on the following pages illustrates these shades and tints.
