• Only colors that tend toward grays and/or browns are used

Muted colors might add a somber feeling to a work of art if the colors are darker in value, or they might offer a serene feeling if they are lighter in value.

With the attention to color minimized, the artist can direct the viewer’s attention more to the forms and shapes depicted.
