Color Schemes

In my visual literacy class, we were sent out on a scavenger hunt to find color schemes around town.  As you can see below, there is a color wheel, and from that you can make analogous, alternate analogous, triads, split compliment, and monochromatic color schemes.  On one side of the color scheme you have cool colors: greens, blues, and violets.  On the other side is all the warm colors: reds, oranges, and yellows.
