Analogous Color Schemes

The Quilter’s Studio Color Study Group                                                                  June 16, 2012
Analogous color schemes:                                                               
Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs.
·         Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye.
·         Harmony and variety are balanced to create unity.  Analogous colors will be harmonious, but boring unless there is variety in the contrasts, proportions and/or design
·         Make sure you have enough contrast (intensity, value, pattern/texture) when choosing an analogous color scheme.
·         Choose one color to dominate, a second to support. The third color is used (along with black, white or gray) as an accent.  Avoid using equal amounts of each color
