The ColorBreeze Seasons
What is most unique about the ColorBreeze system is the additional soft seasons, plus some additional all-cool and all-warm versions of classic seasons like Light Spring and Deep Winter.
About the Soft seasons: All the ColorBreeze seasons begins with the 4 main seasons of Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn. Within the main seasons, there are 7 sub-seasons. Even the Winters and Springs, who traditionally have clear chromas, will each have two new soft seasons. Summers and Autumns whose chroma is already soft and muted, with have four total soft sub-seasons (meaning "soft" is their dominant characteristic").
Depending on whether a Soft season has been toned with grey (lighter or darker grey) or toasted with brown (lighter or darker brown) will determine if they the 'flow' warm (sunlit or toasted) or "flow" cool (dusty or smokey).
With the ColorBreeze Complete System, additional versions of Light Spring, Light Summer, Deep Winter, Deep Autumn, Clear Spring and Clear Winter were identified as well.
This brings a total of 28 seasons in the ColorBreeze Complete System!
This also completes spaces on my Color Tree which was inspired by artist Albert Munsell.
If you are totally overwhelmed with all these seasons, take a step back into the 12-season system. After all, most seasons in the 12-season system comprise the ColorBreeze as well, like the Cool Winter, Light Spring, Warm Autumn etc. So if you are knowledgeable about the 12 seasons, you already understand more than half of the system!
And if you are familiar with the Soft Summers and the Soft Autumns in the previous system, you might have noticed that there are definitely lighter and darker versions of each Soft Summer and Soft Autumn. ColorBreeze identified that and split them into two more precise seasons.
Understanding the concept of a soft spring and soft winter may be brand new to you. But once you understand the characteristics of these seasons you will start looking for and seeing them often.
I admit what is trickiest is the last part of the process and that is determining whether the soft season has any visible warmth or coolness in her coloring. Put another way, you will be determining where that season seems to flow into. This would be its sister-season.
