split complementary color schemes

In Experiments on February 23, 2010 by nameplace

Here I tried to experiment with tints, shades and tones that I wouldn’t normally work with in combination. I think the first set is successful but I don’t think it’s a good idea in most cases to work with the bottom two sets in the proportions shown. The pure red hue for instance would need to be a very small accent and one of the colors from the middle set would need to be dominant with the other two working as accents.
