7 Warm: appear to advance Cool: appear to recede Color Temperature

8 Monochromatic: derived from a single base hue, and extended using its shades, and tints Polychromatic: random use of color Analogous: colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel Complementary: colors that are across each other on the color wheel Color Schemes
