Choosing the perfect color combination can be tricky. Luckily, we have a few no-fail techniques to find the best colors every time.
Let’s start with the basics. The wheel helps you identify three types of colors: Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary.
Primary colors are red, yellow, and blue. These three colors can be used to create all colors.
Secondary colors are orange, green, and violet. These are created by mixing two primary colors together.
Tertiary colors are yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, and red-orange. These colors are created by mixing a primary color and a secondary color.
When selecting your color combo, we recommend two options – Complementary or Analogous.
Complementary colors prove that opposites attract. Colors that are complementary are found directly opposite one another and offer strong contrasts, such as red and green that create a vibrant look. This is a great option for when you want to create a piece that stands out.
Analogous colors typically match well and are known to have a calming effect. To choose an analogous color scheme, select three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as green, blue-green, and blue.
Now that you know the tricks, creating color harmony is easy!
