Warm and Cool colours

Today we drew a Carnival Mask based on the principle of Warm and Cool Colours.

Warm Colours are those colours which give us a warm and happy feeling, remind us of joyous moments, signify heat and warmth, thus sunny, clear and Summery weather. These are: reds, pinks, oranges, yellows and earth colours.

Cool colours, on the contrary, are those melancholy colours which remind us of cold and wet weather and may give sadder and tranquil emotions. These are: blues, purples and greens.

Black and white are neutral colours, therefore they can go with both warm and cool colours, mixed to create different shades on the two diverse sides.

Furthermore, we linked the colours with feelings, seasons and the weather. Therefore, on the mask is happy on the warm side, whilst weepy on the cool one.
