Warm & Cool Colour Temperatures in Art

Greeting card with an image of my painting, Autumn Landscape, available at my Zazzle shop.

In my painting, Autumn Landscape, I wanted to achieve the warm golden yellow, reds and oranges of autumn. Colour temperatures are warm or cool. Yellow, red and orange are warm colours (hues) and green, violet and blue are cool colours. But the range of a colour varies from warm to cool. An orange yellow is warmer than a green yellow. My colour palette in my painting is primarily muted warm colours. There are cool colours, i.e. the blue water. The cool colours contrast with the dominant warm hues.
