How to Color the Color Wheel If you want to experiment with colors start with these 5 combinations ranging from easiest to most advanced to color your own circle. 1. Keep it simple with monochrome harmonies The safe bet the one that never fails is to choose a single color and move from its tones and shades going from stronger to lighter or vice versa. This allows you to reduce risks and maintain a consistent aesthetic in an easy way. 2. Limit the use of analogous colors Analogous colors as we saw earlier are those that are considered to be in harmony that is those colors that are close to each other on the color wheel and that are very similar but slightly different.
Choose them to experiment. 3. Dare to unite with complementary colors Complementary colors achieve sensational results when put together although if you dont have experience they may seem too bold together. Green and red are an example of this. 4. Dare to generate more complex photo background removing combinations creating harmonies from a base color and the two adjacent ones from its opposite. For example with the colors orange blue and green. 5. Do your experiments digitally Some free apps let you try out color combinations before putting them into your work.
