• A triadic colour scheme utilizes three hues that are equally spaced/equal distance from each other on the colour wheel.
  • The hues can vary in value, but as with analogous and complementary colour schemes, the variations of tints (white added to the hues) and shades (black added to the hues) would again be fewer in a triadic colour scheme.
  • In this example, the hues utilized are red, yellow, and blue. Any combination of three colours at equal distances ( such as green, violet and orange, or, red-orange, yellow-green, and blue-violet) will create a triadic colour scheme.
  • Because the hues come from such different parts of the colour wheel, the result of a triadic colour scheme can be a very exciting and lively combination.
