Understanding Color

VALUE: Use value of high contrast to draw attention.


(1) Monochromatic: One color;
(2) Analogous: Adjacent colors
(3) Triadic: Equally distant colours
(4) Complimentary: Opposing colors
(5) Split-Complimentary: One complimentary end extended
(6) Double-Complimentary: Two pairs of opposing colors
