Tints and Tones

Recently we learned about monochromatic colour schemes that use a variation of lightness and saturation of one main colour.  Paintings like this produce a soothing effect because the colours go so well together.  Within monochromatic schemes, tints, shades and tones are used with the main hue.

With our art example today we used a monochromatic colour scheme using burnt umber and burnt Sienna and white (tint) to create a monochromatic landscape.
