About Working with Warm Colors

Through the process of sight, colors can be transformed into sensations or feelings. Warm colors are color tones ranging from yellow to orange to red, including brown. Warm colors are reminiscent of warm sunlight and heat, which invokes a pleasant, warm feeling within the viewer. You can experience the effect of warm colors very well in nature during dawn and dusk. The optical phenomenon of twilight colors is always fascinating. Twilight is the term used to describe the transition between day and night at the beginning or the end of the day. Dawn ends with the appearance of the upper edge of the sun above the horizon. Vice versa, dusk begins with the disappearance of the upper edge of the sun below the horizon. Therefore, the period of time when the sun rises or goes down is still considered daytime and not twilight. During twilight, you can no longer see the sun, just the spectrum of its warm colors.

Since the sun sets vertically at the equator, twilight only lasts 20 minutes. The warm colors of the setting sun can also be experienced very intensely at the equator. The extremely warm colors of the sky can then make plants and animals appear as two-dimensional black silhouettes.
