Analogous Colors

Analogous colors lie next to each other on the color wheel.

A comfortable and pleasing color combination, analogous colors are often found in nature. Typically one of the analogs will be a dominating color, one supporting, and the third as an accent.

Calculating analogs is done by rotating 30 degrees around the color wheel in each direction from the starting color, looping around if the rotation goes over 360 or below 0 degrees.
