This is the last color harmony of our color series! Are you ready for it? The last of the 5 color harmonies is Triad. A triadic harmony occurs when you take a combination of either the three primary, three secondary, or the three intermediate or tertiary colors, all of which are equal distance on the color wheel.
This example from DesignMaster is using the three primary colors of red, yellow, and blue, and they give us this tip, “When using the primary triad of red, yellow, and blue you can express a playful directness. Even tints, tones and shades of these three colors lend an unsophisticated charm. But when using secondary or intermediate triads, remember that because we are constantly surrounded by green (trees, grass…), the eye will often only recognize its absence. This phenomenon may mean you’ve ventured into triad territory without even knowing it: Counting the green foliage, an arrangement of Peach accented with Lavender is actually a triadic harmony. Learn to be aware of the omnipresent green.”
Since this is the last of our color harmonies, which ones do you want to try or which are your favorite? Let me know! Stay tuned for the last post in the color series all about different color interactions!
A special Thank you to DesignMaster for the photos and information on color harmonies!
