Oxblood (#4A0000) is a highly saturated and warm shade of red commonly associated with thorough (72.7% match), sleek (72.4% match), and bitter (72.2% match). When Oxblood is combined with Davy's gray, it appears steady and dignified. When joined with Graphite Gray, the mood becomes more mature. When Oxblood is added to Dark Olive Drab, it evokes substantial and mature feelings. When paired with its complementary color #004C4C, a less saturated variant of the shade "Deep Jungle Green", it can convey dapper or thorough emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #004C00 (a shade of "Lincoln Green") and #00004C (a shade of "Navy Blue"), the resulting palette becomes warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "classic" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a thorough and bitter atmosphere.
