This piece by Frederick Childe Hassam is a good example of the use of cool colors. What one sees is a tint of blue (and blue is the color which overlaps this whole piece). Blue=cool. It is also cool because of how everything fades away the further it goes.
This is an example of monochromatic. We can see here a use of purely red colors. Never mind the white that has no effect to it in a sense of color because it is just value. This thing screams red and its self-explanatory.
This is an example of warm coloring. Red (background) and yellow (on this man's body) are said to be the warmer colors. These colors add excitement to this piece. This is in hell, and so the warm colors add the feel of a fiery touch.
This is a good example of using analogous colors. The main colors in this piece are green and yellow. Analogous means that the used colors are next to each other on the color wheel. One can see that a hint of green and yellow do in fact go hand in hand.
This piece by Antonio Alvarez has use of primary colors all over it (and its used so well, too). The primary colors on the color wheel are red, yellow, and blue. Looking at this piece, one can see these three colors very easily.
The main colors on this picture are some what red/green type colors. Since red is exactly opposite of red, it can then be said that this piece has a good use of complementary colors, and as one can see, these are the only colors.
Pay attention to the red looking parts of this piece, because that is where the explanation lies. One part looks like a red/orange type mix and the other part looks like some red/purple type color. Because of this mixing of primary and secondary, it is tertiary.
There are 4 kind of colors in this piece: Green, Red, Orange, and Blue. If orange be with blue and green be with red, the one can see that this piece is a good example of using tetradic colors. It is this scheme because it shows two pairs of complementary colors.
This piece has, for the most part, a good use of secondary colors. The biggest secondary color is the grass (and part of the plant). The second biggest is the plant/flower looking thing, which is composed of purple. The last secondary color is orange, which can be seen on a couple of butterflies.
