Is burnt sienna considered a red? or Orange? Torturing myself with the Three Colors Project and I'm wondering what kind of a color scheme this is--burnt sienna, cerulean blue, and naples yellow. Phyl

Well...without having looked at the project criteria, I would say the main food groups are here. You have a yellow...a blue, and the burnt sienna falls in line with a reddish-orange brown. Should be able to do some interesting mixings with these as your main colors.

Browns are either cold browns...or warm browns. Since browns are made with red and yellow plus a little blue, adjusting the amounts of red and yellow to the blue can easily make warm or cool variations.
