Triadic Color Scheme

Triadic color schemes use colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.

Usage
triadic(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 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.

Value

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