@sandra-strait Yes, I agree! It can be such a tricky colour scheme. At least understanding which pigments are part of each tetrad is helpful for a beginner. I still struggle trying to figure out whether some pigments are warm or cool. lol
Warm and cool is hardest of all. While it’s fairly easy to group by family – yellows & reds warm, blues & greens cool – once you start gettting into brights, earths, masters, high-key, low-key … all the many properties, then warm and cool get fuzzy and you have to start comparing based on what you’re using at the moment.
