analogous color schemes

In Colorbook on February 5, 2010 by nameplace

… identified by their dominant colors

greens, blues, violets

yellows, greens, blues

yellow-oranges, oranges, red-oranges

reds, red-oranges, oranges

reds, oranges, yellows

and the same object with minor lighting differences bring out different colors in it (what makes iridescent and reflective objects so incredible!)

this one is a bit cooler overall and leans more towards cyan

while this one is a bit warmer and is closer to green…

And I these examples show NEARLY analogous schemes. I don’t think they are exactly analogous since they both skip over red, and go towards magenta and red-violets.

in short, analogous color schemes are everywhere!
