01 The extension of color
The word "color" as we understand it today did not refer to color in ancient times, but to the color of the face. It was not until the Tang Dynasty that the word "color" was used as a generic term for the colors of nature. At that time, the culture of the Tang Dynasty was open and tolerant, and the demand for aesthetics in clothing, food, housing, and transportation was also unprecedentedly prosperous.
The development and application of color in different fields were relatively proficient, resulting in the most representative Tang Sancai (唐三彩, Tang Dynasty pottery), Cao Mu Ran (草木染, plants dyeing, the use of natural vegetable dyes to color textiles), Tang makeup, etc., which also created the concept of the earliest color system in China.
Over time, there is also the extension of the same color system "gradient". As Huainanzi records: "The number of colors is only five, but the number of variations of the five colors is incomparable."
Some people feel that the color is too bright, light colors and show plain, so there is a gradient color, perhaps mentioned gradient color, you will always think of those extremely difficult to control the color.

If you feel that white clothes are monotonous and boring, then gradient color is the best coloring to spice things up. Gradient color in the sunlight, since the flash can be disoriented, at this time and pure color matching, is a static and a dynamic. Plain and gradient, such as a sea of golden light at sunset, such as the rain over the cloudy cliffs of the mountains, the most appropriate. Because of the eye-catching gradient color, even if this time only a simple color scheme, the same can be artistic.

The vertical gradient, from the line of sight, can also be thin and tall, decorated with a belt, it is a more wearing effect.
Wang Ximeng's "A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains" depicts a gradation of colors, rendered in light ink with ochre or Huaqing (花青, a pigment used in Chinese painting, it is made from natural indigo), then dyed with ochre, followed by soft green on top of the stone, and finally dyed with Shiqing (石青, a dark blue that is close to black), keeping the ochre color underneath the stone, with natural layers of gradation and smooth changes.
The principle of color matching is: light colors with light gradient, dark colors with dark gradient, how to look not easily out of date. In any case, white, gray is the universal neutral tone. Contrasting colors, such as red and green, red and blue, yellow and blue, etc., can be carried out as a colorful dressing alternative.
