colours monochromatic


uses tints and tones one colour

(add black and white to one colour)

eg. tan, pink, brown or light blue, dark blue, blue

One way to create a monochrome scheme is to use tints and tones of the one colour with different textures

Often colours from nature, such as greens and browns will feel comfortable in a monochrome scheme, without excessive black, white and greys.

To calm the drama, use a lot of white and grey with your monochrome scheme.

To add dramatic contrast use black.

Tone the colour to achieve interest. It my not be a pure monochrome scheme - but interesting!
