BEAUTY OF LIFE - COLOURS - PART 2

Color schemes are used to create style and appeal. Colors that create an aesthetic feeling when used together will commonly accompany each other in color schemes. Color schemes are often described in terms of logical combinations of colors on a colour wheel. Different  types of schemes are as follows ~


Complementary colors are pairs of colors which, when combined, cancel each other out. This means that when combined, they produce a grey scale color like white or black. When placed next to each other, they create the strongest contrast for those particular two colors. 


Analogous colors are groups of three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, with one being the dominant color. An analogous color scheme creates a rich, monochromaatic look. the scheme also lacks contrast and is less vibrant than complementry schemes.


Triadic colors scheme uses three colours equally spaced around the colour wheel. The eaisest way to place them on the wheel is by using the triangle of equal sides. Triadic colour schemes tend to be quiet vibrant. It is not as contrasting as the complementry colour.


Split-complementary colors scheme is a variation of the complementary color scheme. In addition to the base color, it uses the two "Analogous" colors adjacent to its complement. Split-complementary color scheme has the same strong visual contrast as the complementary color scheme.


Tetradic colors scheme is the richest of all the schemes because it uses four colors arranged into two complementary color pairs and offers plenty of possibilities for variation. This schemes work best when one color is dominant. If all four colors are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced.


Square colours scheme is similar to Tetradic colours, but with all four colors spaced evenly around the color circle. It works best when all colors are evenly balanced.
