How are polychromatic colors made

Monochromatic colors are all of the colors (tones, tints, and shades) of a single hue.

Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base tone and expanded with their shades, tones and tones. Hues are achieved by adding white and hues, and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, gray or black.

Monochromatic color schemes provide opportunities for the design of art and visual communication as they allow for a wider range of contrasting tones that can be used to promote attention, focus, and readability.

Using a monochromatic color provides a strong sense of visual cohesion and can help support communication goals through the use of connotative colors. The relative absence of hue contrast can be offset by varying the hue and adding texture.

Monochromatic in science means that they consist of a single wavelength of light or other radiation (for example, lasers usually produce monochromatic light) or have only one color (compared to polychromatic). This means that according to the scientific knowledge, the real monochromatic images can strictly only be created from shades of one color that become black.

However, monochromatic also has other meanings such as “dull” or “colorless”, which sometimes results in a design consisting of true monochromatic hues (one hue fades to black) and the colors from one hue but faded for all wavelengths (to White). This is not monochromatic in the strictly scientific sense of the word.
