We Tone a colour by adding the contrasting colour to make a form of grey

Just before a colour becomes the perfect grey (with equal proportions of primary paint colours- red, blue, yellow) it will be a taupe. There is a slight predominance of a secondary colour (orange-taupe, green-taupe, purple-taupe)
