Dual Complementary color scheme consists of two colors side by side and their two complementary colors opposite them on the color wheel.
This color scheme uses two adjacent hues and their opposites. it uses four colors arranged into two complementary color pairs. This scheme is hard to harmonize; if all four colors are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced, so you should choose a color to be dominant or subdue the colors.
The following are examples of Dual Complementary Color Schemes:
