I’m certainly no expert on color theory, so I hope these ‘cheat sheets’ are both correct and useful. And there is much more to say on this subject!

P.S. The “green effect” when adding a yellow layer on a cool grey layer is less (almost non-existent) when using the watercolor tool, unless you are using a really blueish yellow. I think this is because the yellow watercolor is more opaque than the yellow outliner/marker, but I’m not sure. Still, the different between cool and warm grey is something to be aware off, especially when using it as a under layer for a colored sketch. And you might encounter it in real life, for example when using for example Copic markers or watercolors.
