The triadic colors are created by evenly spacing three colors in a triangle on a color wheel, with one of the colors being the original.
Tetradic colors are two sets of complementary pairs that are opposite of each other on a color wheel.
An analogous color is created by getting two colors on either side of the original color on a color wheel.
