Pear Pizzazz and a Wide-Angle Analogous Scheme

Analogous Color Schemes happen with a set of colors (usually three) that are side-by-side on the Color Wheel or my Real Life Color Coach Color Charts. However, I came up with the term “Wide-Angle Analogous Scheme” in my article, “Let’s Call It a Wide-Angle Analogous Scheme” when there were skips in my side-by-side colors.

Today’s Color Scheme starts with Pear Pizzazz and adds Pacific Point for contrast. Remember, Smoky Slate is a Neutral and doesn’t affect the scheme. Pear Pizzazz is a Tint of the Green-Yellow Color Group. Pacific Point is the Hue of the Blue Color Group. If you look at the typical Color Wheel, Yellow-Green, Green, Blue-Green and Blue are side-by-side. So there are skips from Yellow-Green to Blue, making it a Wide-Angle. If you consolidate the Color Wheel to just Primary and Secondary colors, Yellow, Green and Blue are side-by-side with no skips. So we spread it out!

This combination is good for Birthday, party, Thank You, Friendship, or cards for any other occasion. It’s also a good, high-contrast combination for scrapbook pages.
