12 Analogous Often referred to as adjacent. Two, three, or four hues that lie next to one another on the color wheel. All hues have one hue in common. Possible colors (Can include tints, tones & shades) Yellow-green, yellow, yellow-orange, orange Feeling created: can be calming or exciting depending on whether they come from the cool or warm side of the color wheel. This color scheme is most effective if one of the hues repeats some aspect of your personal coloring… eyes, hair…


14 Complementary Combine two colors from the opposite side of the color wheel. Possible colors: red & green, blue & orange Feeling associated: stimulating due to opposite visual characteristics. By dulling the intensity or value, calming effect may be achieved. Can be very flattering to personal coloring, and versatile

Possible colors: tints, tones and shades of primary or secondary colors Very exciting and stimulating if used in full strength.
