Color Theory Primer Understanding color is key in AI art. It shapes mood and tells stories silently. Let’s begin with the basics of color. Hue refers to what we know as color — reds, blues, and so on. Saturation is about the richness of a color, and brightness determines how light or dark it is.

Primary colors — red, blue, and yellow — are the main ingredients that can’t be made by mixing others. They’re the starting point. Combine them, and you get secondary colors like orange and green. Tertiary colors like blue-green come from mixing primary and secondary colors.

In art, how you combine colors matters. Complementary colors, opposite on the color wheel, make each other stand out. Analogous colors, close to each other on the wheel, create a peaceful look.

Grasp these basics, and you’re set to use color palettes effectively in AI art, making your images more engaging.
