Color wheel

The color wheel makes it easy to find harmonious color schemes for your color palette.

Simply select a color from your palette by clicking on it, and the color wheel will generate colors based on it. Click on any of the colors to add them to your palette.

You can also use custom color by clicking on the custom color field in the top right corner and typing in a color in the format #RRGGBB.

Color schemes

  • Analogous - Three colors next to each other on the color wheel.
  • Monochromatic - Colors created from one hue by adding black or white.
  • Complementary - Colors opposite of each other on the wheel.
  • Split-Complementary - Combination of complementary and analogous color schemes.
  • Triadic - Three colors evenly spaced around the color wheel.
  • Tetradic - Created by combining two complementary pairs, resulting in four colors in a rectangular pattern on the color wheel.
