I learned that prismatic colors are the purest and chromatic colors are the least saturated. Muted colors lie in between. In order to obtain prismatic colors (pure R,O,Y,G,B,V) you use the primary colors (Red, yellow, blue). In order to make the other 3 prismatic colors (O,G,V) you mix red, yellow and blue accordingly. To create muted colors you can add either black, white, or it’s compliment. When adding black, you are shading and when adding white you are tinting. Using compliments can be tricky because using too much can lead to chromatic colors. Chromatic colors are essentially a muddy brown/grey and are created using a color and it’s compliment.
