The tetradic color scheme

The tetradic color scheme is the richest of all the schemes because 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.


Pros: The tetradic scheme offers more color variety than any other scheme.
Cons: This scheme is the hardest scheme to balance.

Tips:
1. If the scheme looks unbalanced, try to subdue one or more colors.
2. Avoid using pure colors in equal amounts.

It is the last tip of how to create color harmony on your illustration or color sketch, I hope this is useful.
