When orange and red are mixed together, they create a warm and vibrant shade of red-orange, or vermilion. This tertiary color can be used in art or design to make your creations stand out from the crowd. It can also be mixed with other colors to create different shades and tints.
The primary colors are Yellow, Blue, and Red. Combining any of these colors makes the secondary colors of Purple and Green. Mixing any of these secondary colors with a primary yields the tertiary color of Orange.
Artists such as Henri Matisse and Jessica Colaluca use orange to create bright, inviting works of art that make people feel happy. They each use different techniques and combinations of hues to achieve their desired results.
Red and orange can be combined with a variety of other colors to create interesting combinations. They are adjacent on the color wheel, so they complement each other beautifully. They are also complementary to blue and green tones. The bright orange can be used to add a pop of color and catch people's attention in a logo or poster design.
Adding black or white to orange and red can create different shades of the color. Darker colors are known as shades, and lighter ones are called tints. Tinting is done by dripping very small amounts of another color into the orange and red mixture. For example, if you want to turn the red-orange into a darker shade of the same color, you could dip your paintbrush in a bit of violet (or magenta) and mix it into the orange-red mix.
