10/23/14 . A color theory is the visual arts, color theory is a body of practical guidance to colormixing and the visual effects of a specific color combination. There are also definitions (or categories) of colors based on the color wheel: primary color, secondary color and tertiary color.

A " Color Wheel " or " Color Circle " is an abstract illustrative organization of color hues around a circle that shows relationships between primary colors, secondary colors, tertiary colors etc

In color theory, a color scheme is the choice of colors used in design for a range of media. For example, the "Achromatic" use of a white background with black text is an example of a basic and commonly default color scheme in web design. Color schemes are used to create style and appeal.

Warm Colors include red, orange, and yellow, and variations of those three colors. These are the colors of fire, of fall leaves, and of sunsets and sunrises, and are generally energizing, passionate, and positive. Red and yellow are both primary colors, with orange falling in the middle, which means warm colors are all truly warm and aren’t created by combining a warm color with a cool color. Use warm colors in your designs to reflect passion, happiness, enthusiasm, and energy.

Red is a very hot color. It’s associated with fire, violence, and warfare. It’s also associated with love and passion. In history, it’s been associated with both the Devil and Cupid. Red can actually have a physical effect on people, raising blood pressure and respiration rates. It’s been shown to enhance human metabolism, too. Red can be associated with anger, but is also associated with importance (think of the red carpet at awards shows and celebrity events). Red also indicates danger (the reason stop lights and signs are red, and that most warning labels are red).

Orange ( Secondary Color ) is a very vibrant and energetic color. In its muted forms, it can be associated with the earth and with autumn. Because of its association with the changing seasons, orange can represent change and movement in general.Because orange is associated with the fruit of the same name, it can be associated with health and vitality. In designs, orange commands attention without being as overpowering as red. It’s often considered more friendly and inviting, and less in-your-face.

Yellow ( Primary Color ) Yellow is often considered the brightest and most energizing of the warm colors. It’s associated with happiness and sunshine. Yellow can also be associated with deceit and cowardice, though (calling someone yellow is calling them a coward). Yellow is also associated with hope, as can be seen in some countries when yellow ribbons are displayed by families who have loved ones at war. Yellow is also associated with danger, though not as strongly as red.

Technolagy , The technological devices that were supposed to make our lives simpler are taking away our lives. We’re working harder to keep up with our own inventions.

The price of being available 24-7 is the loss of time for loved ones, reflection, relaxation, and spiritual growth.

One thing that im grateful for is my family , my mom most importanly because she always tries her best to give me what i want, she puts me first before everything she does. When im sad or mad she tries her best to comfort me. I couldn't ask for a better mother she means everything to me. I love my mom and I dont know what I would do without her. Second thing im thankful is for my Dad and his wife Syliva , and 4 girls. Even though they live far from i know i can count on them, when i need someone to talk to and the time that i spend with them when i go vist is amazing and i wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world. Third thing that im thankful for is for Nallely im blessed to have an amazing friend like her to talk to , when i need a shoulder to lean on shes always been there for me no matter what the situation is. I consider more as sister then a friend.
