Triadic Color Scheme
Triadic color schemes use colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.
triadic(color, plot = TRUE, bg = "white", labcol = NULL, cex = 0.8, title = TRUE)
- an R color name or a color in hexadecimal notation
- logical value indicating whether to plot a color wheel with the generated scheme
- background color of the plot. Used only when
- color for the labels (i.e. names of the
colors). Used only when
- numeric value indicating the character expansion of the labels
- logical value indicating whether to display
a title in the plot. Used only when
The triadic colors are obtained following a color wheel with 12 colors, each one spaced at 30 degrees from each other. Triadic color schemes tend to be quite vibrant. To use a triadic harmony successfully, the colors should be carefully balanced letting one color dominate and use the others for accent.

colors in hexadecimal notation
