Modified Triad Color Scheme

Modified triad color schemes are created by choosing three colors on the wheel, each with only one space separating them instead of the two spaces used to create complementary triads.

Because their colors are closer together on the wheel, these triads are more subdued than complementary triads.

These color schemes are similar to analogous schemes, but show slightly more contrast. The contrast occurs because the colors at either end of the arc are farther apart than the outer colors of a three-color analogous arc.

The following are examples of Modified Triad Color Schemes.

"Jungle Boogie"

"Freeform 3-D Netted Cuff" by Barbara L. Grainger
