A Crash Course in Color Theory

Before you dig into the treasure trove of curated color schemes, it’s helpful to understand what makes them work so well so you can modify/mix/match to make your own! 

Color wheel

The color wheel diagrams the relationship between colors. It’s an essential tool for understanding foundational visual art principles known as color theory.

We’re going to use the color wheel to explain key color harmonies: complementary, analogous, triadic, tetradic, and monochromatic. 

Complementary Color Combinations

Complementary color schemes are comprised of two colors that are directly across from each other on the color wheel.

Some complements include red and green, blue and orange, and yellow and purple. These colors appear more vibrant when paired together, so exercise caution.

Complementary color wheel example

Analogous Color Combinations

This color scheme uses three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, often presented as different tints and shades. These can be paired with a neutral color to round out the palette.

Analogous color wheel example

Triadic Color Combinations

A triadic color scheme uses three colors that are evenly spaced around the wheel, in a triangle shape.

The combination of hues we know as “primary” (red, blue, and yellow) and “secondary” (orange, purple, and green) are examples of triadic harmonies. 

Triadic color wheel example

Tetradic Color Combinations

This color scheme uses two pairs of complementary colors, creating a rectangle on the color wheel. 

Tetradic color wheel example

Monochromatic Color Scheme

Monochromatic color palettes are made up of a single base hue, then extended with that hue’s shades, tints, and tones.

By adding black, white, or gray to a color, you can create a consistent color palette that’s versatile and easy on the eyes.

Monochromatic color wheel example

Bright Color Combinations

Vivid colors are both attention-grabbing and intense. Their bold nature can be overpowering when paired with other rich hues, so use them sparingly.
