COMPLEMENTARY: Opposite colors on the color wheel, such as: Red & Green Blue & Orange Yellow & Violet
SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY: A color and the two colors located on either side of its complement.
DOUBLE COMPLEMENTARY: The richest of all schemes because it uses 4 colors arranged in 2 complementary color pairs, but the hardest scheme to balance.
PRIMARY TRIADIC: Any combination of the primary color: red, yellow, and blue; and their tints and shades.
SECONDARY TRIADIC: Any combination of the secondary colors: violet, orange, and green; and their tints and shades.
TERTIARY TRIADIC: Sets of 3 tertiary colors that are equidistant from each other on the color wheel.
ANALOGOUS: Uses 3 or more colors that are right next to each other on the color wheel.
ACHROMATIC: Combination of black, white, and gray hues, tints, and shades.
CHROMATIC GRAY: Made from a mixture of colors such as: Purple-gray and Blue-gray
