When you plan with split complementary colors, you begin with a single reference color. Next, choose a color from either edge of the complementary color and use it.

By the same token, picking a a warm undertone for the main contrasting color and combining it with two cool tones will showcase the warm tone. TEMPERATURE OF COLOR. Colors have temperature, referred to as warm or cool. In painting, reds, yellows and oranges are referred to as warm colors and blues, violets and greens are referred to as cool colors. One of the biggest lessons you will ever learn about color temperature though, is that the appearance of color can change drastically depending on its surroundings. For instance, a certain yellow would appear much hotter if it were surrounded by a violet then say an orange.

When used together in a painting, they can produce brilliant vibrant images.
