Color Saturation

 Different color saturation for the same hue adds interest.
Chroma is a related term. Color swatches moving progressively outward on the color wheel increase in chroma or intensity vs. grayness. Moving toward the hub of the wheel they become grayer.

I varied the intensity on the red leaves in this painting. The increased intensity is closest to the focal point.
