Colour Dimensions Explained For Seasonal Colour Analysis

SPRING and WINTER colours are more bright and clear while SUMMER and AUTUMN colours are more soft and muted. Adding one more dimension to colour analysis results more accurate 12 season colour analysis by allowing the seasons to overlap of flow to each other.Therefore this is also called "FLOW THEORY”.

Seasonal Colour Analysis Flow Theory

Every primary season is divided into 3 sub categories where the main seasons overlap and the new season is created. For example, Soft Autumn is between Summer and Autumn which has warm features of its main season but also has intensity characteristic from Summer.

How are the colours determined for each season?
