Ok, so hopefully you now have some idea of whether you are warm or cool and your undertone vs overtone from these posts. Now it’s time to figure out your intensity – what is intensity? It’s the saturation or brightness or dullness of the colour. Albert Munsell was the man who figured out that colour wasn’t just one thing – but a combination of several elements, he called intensity the chroma.
What is chroma? Colours are called chromatic. Black/White/Grey are called achromatic. So the chroma scale is the gradations of a colour from it’s brightest intensity (highest saturation or pure colour) down to the point where it’s a version of grey with a whisper of that colour left.
