Adjacent or analogous colors

Adjacent color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. These colors usually match well and create comfortable designs.

Usage
adjacent(color, plot = TRUE, bg = "white", labcol = NULL, cex = 0.8, title = TRUE)
Arguments
color
an R color name or a color in hexadecimal notation
plot
logical value indicating whether to plot a color wheel with the generated scheme
bg
background color of the plot. Used only when plot=TRUE
labcol
color for the labels (i.e. names of the colors). Used only when plot=TRUE
cex
numeric value indicating the character expansion of the labels
title
logical value indicating whether to display a title in the plot. Used only when plot=TRUE
Details

The analogous colors are obtained following a color wheel with 12 colors, each one spaced at 30 degrees from each other.

Value

A character vector with the given color and the analogous colors in hexadecimal notation
