Warm & Cool Colours/ Depth  Space

Colours are either warm or cool.

Broadly, the 'warm' colours are those that fall within the yellow-orange-red sections of the colour wheel.

The 'cool' colours range through the purple-blue-green segments.

Because warm colours appear to come forward in the picture space and cool colours seem to recede.

Opposing warm and cool colours help create space and form in a composition.

The painting ' Norfolk Broads' by Terry McKivragan gives a strong impression of space. The warm colours are in the foreground. Moving back to the horizon, the colours become progressively cooler & the tone lighter.

Each colour has its own degree of warmth or coolness: for instance, lemon yellow is a cool yellow, while cadmium yellow is warm.
