When mixing hues with achromatic neutrals or other hues, they create various colours and can be described in the following ways.
Tint is the quality that differentiates lighter versions of a colour, such as lemon from yellow, usually achieved by adding white.
Shade differentiates darker versions of a colour, such as navy from blue, usually achieved by adding black.
Tone describes the relative dullness or brightness of a colour, obtained by adding black, white, a combination of black and white, or another colour. For example, adding white to green produces lime, while adding black to green makes olive.
