The monochromatic scheme makes full use of one single color. If a person had a jar of red paint, for instance, he would have only that jar plus black and white to lighten or darken the red. The hue (color) would remain the same only the tones (dark and light values) would change. I have created a value strip to view the various shades of reds.


Here are examples of Red's monochromatic schemes.
