The Color Harmonies are the combinations in which use modulations of the same hue, or also of different nuances, but that maintain a certain relationship with the chosen colors.
The analogous colors are next in the color wheel. The chosen color and its two colors next to both sides, are the colors that predominate in nature and always work well.
The monochromatic colors are those that have the same dye, but differ in hue, value and saturation. For example, paint samples have several different values of the same color. Using two or more monochromatic colors will achieve an elegant and pleasant effect.
The complementary or contrast. The complementary is responsible for neutralizing its opponent if you want to balance a clip. Some 180º in a straight line is always the color that neutralizes that unwanted color. There are more or less saturated colors that need more of their counterpart in certain shades, this would be basic, although as a general rule you have to use it in the same amount. It does not exist in color to subtract color or remove a color, its complementary is added to neutralize that color.
Complementaries split instead of choosing complementary colors or double contraries choose the two adjacent colors of the chosen color, do not completely cancel the opposite color, you leave a predominant tone.
The next thing we have are the triads. They are color harmonies that work with 120º angles in the chromatic circle to join 3 colors, they are stable and complementary colors. The harmony would originate form the yellow, red and blue, the basic.
The tetrads are combinations of chords of four colors, not to be confused with using two complementary pairs (here an angle of 90º) is more complicated to work with them in color correction. There are harmonies of six colors in which, in addition to the 4 colors, chromatic chiaroscuro enters, there are buildings constructed with these patterns.
Saturation, Value and Alpha
Saturation, Value and Alpha are created by adding black, white and gray to the chosen color. Its could be very useful for web design and for matching colors. You can try it on our Html Color Picker.
The Saturations on colors are produced by adding gray to the color you have chosen and due to that action, the color goes from the original to nearly gray.
The Value on colors are produced by adding black to the color you have chosen and due to that action, the color goes from the original to nearly black.
The Alpha on colors are produced by adding white to the color you have chosen and due to that action, the color goes from the original to nearly white.
