The contrast of warm and cool

We already know that The contrast of warm and cool is the contrast formed by the juxtaposition of hues considered “warm” or “cool”.

We have 3 warm colors: Red, Yellow and Orange and 3 cool colors: Blue, Green, Violet.

The warmest color is: Orange (because it is made out of 2 other warm colors: Red and Yellow)

The coolest color is: Blue (because, unlike the other two colors: Green (made of yellow and Blue) and Violet (made of Red and Blue), is a pure and a primary color)
So, the most dramatic complementary contrast of colors is the contrast between these 2 colors: Orange and Blue.
