Color theory is a set of principles that guide the artist, designer, teacher etc.
To select the color combination's that create harmonious and pleasing relationships between colors used in a project.


Simple, Practical Color Theory

Sir Isaac Newton developed the first circular diagram of colors in 1666, then the color wheel was further developed by Louis Prang in 1876.

Color is a language in itself and touches many aspects of our lives.
An understanding how colors work with and against each other goes a long way towards planning many diverse projects.


Color Harmonies


Monochromatic

Monochrome selections are simply one color from the color wheel.


Complementary

Complementary color schemes use colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel.


Split-complementary

The split-complementary color scheme is a variation of the complementary color scheme. In addition to the base color, it uses two colors adjacent to its complement.


Analogous

Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. Analogous schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.


Accented Analogic

Accented analogic color schemes are combination's of analogous and complementary color schemes.
In addition to colors that are adjacent to each other, it uses a complementary accent at its opposite.

Triad
A triadic color scheme uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.


Tetrad (double complementary)
The tetradic or double complementary color scheme uses four colors arranged into two complementary pairs.
