Color schemes:

Complement- any complementary pair. Two colors opposite each other on the color wheel. Add black and white for value changes.
Double Complement- Two pairs of complements next to each other on the color wheel. An example would be Blue and Orange, and Blue-Violet and Yellow-Orange. Add black and white to change values and create tones.
Split Complement- Any complementary pair is chosen, then discard one color replacing it with the two colors on either side of that color on the color wheel. Such as Blue plus Yellow-Orange and Red-Orange. Again use black and white to change values and tones of gray.
Three Analogous plus a Complement- Any three colors next to each other on the color wheel and one of the color’s complements. Black and white for value changes.
