Sepia (#704214) is a highly saturated and warm shade of orange commonly associated with bitter (73.3% match), reasonable (73.2% match), and sturdy (73.0% match). When Sepia is combined with Dim Gray, it appears placid and thorough. When joined with Army Green, the mood becomes more dignified. When Sepia is added to Space Cadet, it evokes substantial and thorough feelings. When paired with its complementary color #144271, a lighter, warmer, and less saturated variant of the shade "Indigo Dye", it can convey calm or complex emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #137042 (a shade of "Cadmium Green") and #421370 (a shade of "Indigo"), the resulting palette becomes harder and 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 majestic and elaborate atmosphere.
