Contrasting Color Scheme

Color schemes deal with combinations of colors. There are mainly three schemes and CONTRASTING is the second. The Contrasting color scheme is further divided into three sub categories Complementary, Split Complementary and Triadic.

Complementary – two hues are used that are opposite to one another on the color wheel.

Split complementary any hue is selected and then two hues next to its complementary color.

Triadic – three colors are used that are evenly spaced from one another.
