Analogous Color scheme for artists

Analogous Color scheme for artists.  Color Harmony: Analogous Color scheme, basic Color Schemes for artists, illustrators, concept design.

The analogous color scheme uses colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. One color is used as a dominant color while others are used to enrich the scheme. The analogous scheme is similar to the monochromatic one, but offers more nuances.

Pros: The analogous color scheme is as easy to create as the monochromatic, but looks richer.

Cons: The analogous color scheme lacks color contrast. It is not as vibrant as the complementary scheme.

Example of Analogous Color Scheme & Harmony below

1. Avoid using too many hues in the analogous scheme, because this may ruin the harmony.
2. Avoid combining warm and cool colors in this scheme.

Alessandro> No software needed, just open another jpg or png file along side the illustration you are working on then color pick it. :)
