Color Temperature

  • Generally, both red and yellow are considered warm, while blue is indisputably cool.

  • More specifically, warm and cool colors are relative to where a color falls on the color wheel.

  • The warmest color is red-orange and the coolest color is blue-green.

  • Everything between those two points has a slightly warmer color on one side of it and a slightly cooler
    one on the other.

  • Its neighbor is either warmer or cooler depending on the direction you are going.
