In subtractive color systems, yellow is a primary color. In art, yellow ochre pigment was one of the first colors used because it was widely available. It is worth mentioning the importance of ochre in art. When mixed with other colors it produces a broad variety of useful natural tones. Also, it is commonly used to produce flesh and skin tones.
Also, you can see yellow as a primary color in Van Gogh paintings too. Yellow is associated with sun worship and may be connected to Van Gogh’s ambivalence towards his father. Here are two yellow color schemes derived from Van Gogh paintings, starry night and Café Terrace on the Place du Forum.
Since yellow is the color of gold and gold is expensive, it has been the color of value and beauty from the ancient time. As of now, yellow represents happiness, life-giving warmth, freshness, and energy. Hence, depending on the color you choose as its companion, you can emphasize its different meanings.
When it comes to color theory, yellow can have lots of stunning complementary monochromatic and triadic schemes. To get the most out of these schemes, remember to adjust the tone, tint, and shades to make perfect harmonies.
