What are pastel colors?[edit]

Pastel colors is a redirect to this article, but this article doesn't even use the word pastel. --Jtir (talk) 15:26, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Changed to redirect to Color theory, which uses the word pastel. --Jtir (talk) 22:39, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

I think to pastel colors probably refers to a color properties inherited by the scientific properties of chromic phenomena such as heat, lossness (?in compression as colors get compressed, the each colors properties within the spectrum becomes hidden).

Questions: In tint theory, does tint increases the texture softness of the color and generate ambiance when exposed to very bright light or surrounding radiance?--75.154.186.241 (talk) 01:11, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Reference issue[edit]

Quote, "or a color's complement. My art teacher says "Tint means to add white and Shade is to add black." "

Should Wikipedia really be sourcing "my art teacher."? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.250.252.34 (talk) 20:09, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

My art teacher taught us red, yellow and blue were the three primary colors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.122.183.107 (talk) 22:00, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
