Record Type: concept
cool colors (color types, colors (hues or tints), Color (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Colors commonly associated with air, sky, and water, such as green, greenish blue, and violet, which suggest coolness and which normally appear to recede. The optical tendency for warm colors to advance before cool colors had been long exploited by European and Oriental painters as a method of suggesting spatial depth.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kleuren die meestal worden geassocieerd met lucht of water, bijvoorbeeld groen, groenblauw en violet, die een koele indruk geven en doorgaans lijken terug te wijken. Het optische verschijnsel waarbij warme kleuren meer op de voorgrond lijken te treden dan koele kleuren, wordt van oudsher door Europese en oosterse schilders benut om een ruimtelijk effect en diepte te suggereren. 
Spanish ..... Colores comúnmente asociados con aire, cielo y agua, tales como verde, azul verdoso, y violeta, que insinúan frialdad u que normalmente parece alejarse.
