warm vs cool colours

The colour wheel consists of three primary colours (red, yellow, blue), three secondary colours (colours created when primary colours are mixed: green, orange, purple) and six tertiary colours (colours made from primary and secondary colours, such as blue-green or red-violet).

Warm colours are generally associated with energy, brightness and action while cool colours are associated with calm, peace and serenity.
