Color Schemes - NEUTRAL
This beautiful sets of color schemes are the natural results of neutralizing colors by mixing them with their respective complementary. Hence, to "tone down" a color, you must mix it with its complementary. To obtain a wider palette of these colors, get tints (color + white) or shades (color + black.)
Many artists used this scheme to paint preliminary studies of paintings or to convey a soft, earthly atmosphere to their compositions.
