Cool or warm generally refers to the position of a colour on a colour wheel. Half of the colour wheel is cool (purple to green) and the other half is warm(green-yellow to red). The balance between cool and warm in painting is very important in creating the emotions of warm and cool colours.
By using colours just from either the warm or cool side of the colour wheel, you can achieve interesting colour harmonies in paintings just by using many variations of greens, blues and purples. The result of this is a very calming and peaceful harmony.
Our Form 1 students experimented like a pro with warm and cool colours using various media and created an exciting colour combination that evoked happy and sad emotions in each of their art pieces.
The outcome is mind-blowing!
