Here's an intriguing website that is a useful tool for those working with colour.

This site allows the user to select a hue from the colour wheel, and to compose monochromatic, complementary, triadic, tetradic and analogous colour schemes based on the colour of choice. Above is a complementary scheme based on a warm blue. Below, a triadic scheme based on the same warm blue.

By clicking on the "Adjust Scheme" option, the user can adjust the saturation and contrast of the palette, as shown below.

As well, the colours of the palette can be named, using RGB, Opaltone or Web identifiers (below).This is a great way to communicate precise colours with others.

Intended for graphic and web designers, this site can be just the thing for artists looking for that perfect choice of accent colour.
