“Desire to fit a chosen contour, such as the pyramid, cone, cylinder or cube, coupled with a lack of proper test, has led to many distorted statements of color relations, & it becomes evident, when physical measurement of pigment values & chromas is studied, that no regular contour will serve.” – Albert H. Munsell, A Pigment Color System & Notation

Example of Munsell’s System A Light Yellow Hue with a Dark Color Mixed In = 5Y 8/12 Pure yellow (5Y) of light hue (8) with a hint of the complimentary color purple (identified by its value in the mix as 12)

Contrasts of Hue The interaction of two or more different colors
Light-Dark Contrast Contrast between light values & dark values
Saturation Contrast of

Complementary Colors at opposite ends of the color wheel. Creates a visual vibration. Ex. Green and Red.
Split Complimentary Color scheme that uses two adjacent colors and their compliment. There is a visual contrast as the Complimentary scheme but its easier on the eyes. Ex. Green, purple, and orange,
Double Complimentary Double complimentary uses four colors, these are two pairs of complimentary colors. Complimentary colors intensify each other; this would make some colors combinations easier to look at than others. Ex. Red, Orange. Green, and Blue.
Analogous An analogous color scheme uses colors which are next to each other on the color wheel. This color scheme is usually the most pleasing to the human eyes, since the colors carry similar wavelengths. Ex. Cool colors, Light-Blue, green, and light-green
Triadic A combination of three colors on the color wheel which are evenly spaced on the color wheel. This scheme tends to be pretty vibrant regardless of combination of colors. Ex. Purple, Orange, and green.
Square This scheme consists of four color evenly spaced of the color wheel. Ex. Red, blue, green, and yellow.
