Color schemes represent a set of colors creating a harmonic and aesthetic feeling. Color schemes are generated by choosing colors around the color wheel.
We can talk about monochromatic, complementary, triadic and tetradic color schemes, choosing one, two, three or four colors around the color wheel respectively. In the following tables these color schemes are present.
The monochromatic scale is generated by choosing colors on the color wheel near to the base color. As the colors of the monochromatic scale are close to each other, they create a harmonic feeling.
The complementary scale is generated by choosing the color on the opposite side on the color wheel relative to the base color. This results in slight vibrating tension between the complementary colors.
The triadic scale is generated by choosing two colors on the color wheel relative to the base color. This combines the slight vibrating tension and the harmonic feeling between the triadic colors.
The tetradic scale is generated by choosing three colors on the color wheel relative to the base color. This combination covers the whole color wheel containing both the complementary and harmonic colors of the base color.
If you want to have a more detailed control of the colors in the schemes, have a look at the Spektran application too!
