When creating an art piece it is important to consider these and your own associations, and of course what would work best with your idea. If you want to make use of color correspondences, consider using a color scheme based on color theory.

Complementary: Complementary or opposite colors from the color wheel - eg Violet and Yellow

Split Complementary: Three colors—the main color and colors from either side of its complement - eg Violet, Yellow Green and Yellow Orange

Triad: Three colors from equidistant points on the color wheel - eg Yellow Green, Red Orange and Blue Violet

Monochromatic: Different shades and depths of a single color

Analogous: The main color and the colors from either side of it on the color wheel - eg - purple, green, blue

Secondary: Green, purple and orange used together

Primary: Red, blue and yellow used together


These schemes help determine what colors work best together in an art piece. They are not the end all be all, and can be tinkered with to best reflect your intent and what you want your piece to look like. This basic part of color theory gives a starting point for your art.
