  color theory
Color theory is an immensely complicated subject, and is understood differently by scientists, printers, web designers and painters.
Colors are classified by three properties: hue, purity and value — terms that are often misunderstood.
Warm colors lie at the orange-red end of the spectrum, and are 'active', causing them to 'advance'.

 Basic color schemes: Color Theory Introduction
Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered to be complementary colors (example: red and green).
Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.
The split-complementary color scheme is a variation of the complementary color scheme.

In color theory, saturation or purity is the intensity of a specific hue.
A highly saturated hue has a vivid, intense color, while a less saturated hue appears more muted and grey.

Every color and color combination triggers an emotional flash that interacts deeply with the color assessment of each color by itself; as a result color assessment must be conducted in environments with controlled conditions and under isolation to avoid possible interactions that may lead to false judgments.

 Color (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Colors are perceiver-dependent but hybrid properties: to have a specific color is to have some intrinsic feature by virtue of which the object has the power to appear in a distinctive way (e.g., as in 4).
Colors are what fill in the outlines of these forms, they are the stuff out of which visual phenomena are built up; our visual world consists solely of differently formed colors; and objects, from the point of view of seeing them, that is, seen objects, are nothing other than colors of different kinds and forms.
Color science is a large field, but it is built around the way that colors appear and to the conditions under which colors can be perceived, and the causes which lead to the perception of colors.

 Advanced Color Theory
In the diagram to the right is a color spectrum that shows this range along with two hue groups (red and blue) known as "tonal families." From the spectrum, any pure hue can be mixed with white, fl or gray to yield a tonal family.
What that means is a color's saturation is the degree to which it is different than gray at a given lightness.
While it is fair to say that the condition of being full or vivid is merely a color's freedom from dilution by gray or its complement, it is important to note that saturation is measured along the lines of equal value or lightness.

Use a single warm color against a range of cool colors to put an emphasis on the warm color (red versus blues and blue-greens, or orange versus blues and blue-violets).
Cons: The triadic color scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme.

The colour wheel is the foundation for much of colour theory, and you would do well to remember what it looks like and where the colours are in relation to each other.
Saturation can also be called a colour's intensity.
It is a measurement of how different from pure grey the colour is. Saturation is not really a matter of light and dark, but rather how pale or strong the colour is. The saturation of a colour is not constant, but it varies depending on the surroundings and what light the colour is seen in.
