Colors of strong luminosity and vividness. Saturated colours are those that have not been strongly broken down by adding their complementary. The opposite of saturation is desaturation, which is achieved by adding an increasing proportion of the initial color’s complementary colour that progressively reduces the hue of the initial colour towards grey. For related information, read the entry concerning contrast of saturation.
