Ever wondered how artists and designers find the perfect colour combination?
What they use is colour theory. It is a active combination of science and art that’s use to regulate what colours look good together.
The colour wheel is the basis of colour theory , as it shows the relationship among the colors.
Colours that look good together is called as colour harmony. Designers and Artists use these to create a particular look or feel. To find colour harmonies by using the rules of colour combinations you can use colour wheel.
There are two types of colour wheel. The RYB – red,yellow and blue colour wheel,it is typically used by artists , as it helps to combining paint colours. Other one is RGB – red,green and blue colour wheel, it is designed for online use , as it is refers to mixing light – like on a tv screen or on a computer screen.
So, friends here are the BEST 5 COLOR SCHEMES FOR COLORING YOU SHOULD KNOW..!!
COLOUR SCHEMES / COMBINATIONS..!!!
Complementary Colour Scheme
On the colour wheel, the two colours which are on opposite sides is the complementary colour scheme. This combination provides high impact and high contrast colour combination – together this colours will appear brighter and more outstanding.
MONOCHROMATIC COLOUR SCHEME
Three shades,tints and tones of one base colour. Provides fine and stable colour combination. It is a flexible colour combination that is easily applied to design projects for a tuneful look.
ANALOGOUS COLOUR SCHEME
On colour wheel, the three colours that are side by side is the analogous scheme. It is a versatile colour combination, but can be fantastic. To balance analogous colour scheme, choose one superior colour, and use the others as signs.
TRIADIC COLOUR SCHEME.
Three colors that are evenly spaced on the color wheel. It provides a high contrast colour scheme, but less so than the complementary color scheme – making it more versatile. This combination creates vibrant, bold colour palettes.
TETRADIC COLOUR SCHEME
Four colors that are evenly spaced on the color wheel. Tetradic color schemes are bold and work best if you let one color be dominant, and use the others as accents. The more colours you have in your palette, the more its difficult to balance.
PRIMARY, SECONDARY AND TERTIARY COLOURS
There are 12 main colours on colour wheel. In RGB colour wheel, that hues are red, orange, yellow, chartreuse green, green, spring green, cyan, azure, blue, violet, magenta and rose.
The colour wheel can be divided into primary, secondary & tertiary colours.
Primary colours in RGB colour wheel are the colours that we add together ,makes pure white light. That colours are red, green and blue.
By mixing two colours, the colours we get results to secondary colours. There are three colours. In the RGB colour wheel, these are cyan, magenta and yellow. When you mix red and green make yellow, green and blue make cyan , blue and red make magenta.
By mixing secondary colour and primary colour it creates tertiary colour. There are six colours. In the RGB colour wheel there are orange, chartreuse green, spring green, azure, violet and rose.
WARM AND COOL COLOURS.
The colour wheel can also be divided into cool and warm colours. The coolness or warmth of colour is called as its volour temperature. On the colour wheel, we found colour combination often have a balance of cool and warm colours. Different colour temperature express different feelings.
Warm colours are the colours from red to yellow. These colours are said to bring mind hotness, like the sun.
Cool colours are the colours from blue to green and purple. These colors are said to bring mind calmness,like the water.
SHADES, TINTS AND TONES.
You can create shades,tones and tints of a colour by adding great,black and white to a base hue.
A shade is created by adding a black colour to a base hue, darkening the colour. This creates a richer, deeper color.
It is created by adding a white colour to a base hue. This can make a colour less acute, and is useful when balancing more realistic colour combination.
It is created by adding white, black or grey color with a base hue. Like tones and tints are faint versions of the original colours.
I hope this post “5 COLOR SCHEMES FOR COLORING “will help you to understand the types of colours, shades,tints and tones. Now, you might be feeling clear about how to select colours, and which lo colours look good together.
