The wiki version does not include a discussion of tone in the attributes section. The following text and image are included in the saylor.org version:
Tone refers to the gradation or subtle changes made to a color when it’s mixed with a gray created by adding two complements (see Complementary Color below). You can see various color tones by looking at the color tree mentioned in the paragraph above. Below is a color model showing hue, chroma (the specific intensity of a color) and value.
I find this section to be confusing. I get the idea of adding gray to a color, but I miss the point about adding two complements. And the image doesn't relate to tone and uses a term which needs defining: chroma. Maybe this section was left out because of these issues.
Just wanted to check.
I wanted to add to the caption the particular colors represented; based on the explanation, it would be green, red-violet, and red-orange. But the orange in the image appears to be the same in the image above which is labeled "orange". Thought it would be useful to check this to make sure it's correct.
