However, the existing color harmony studies used various chromatic colors as main color, leading the results impractical. Therefore, this study conducted an experiment to explore the color harmony induced by near grey colors as main color on the 3D color configuration.
In this study the near-grey colors included white, black, gray, cool gray and warm gray colors as the main color. Ten chromatic basic color terms were used as secondary color. Totally, 170 color combinations were used to apply onto a cuboids with side circle. The color combinations were evaluated on four scales,“active-passive”, “heavy-light”, “warm-cool” and “harmonious-disharmonious”.
The result showed that (1) The results of the “active-passive”, “heavy-light” and “warm-cool” were confirmed to be consistent with the previous color harmony models. (2) Color harmony induced by near gray colors as main color was found to be affected by secondary colors. (3) Color harmony on 2D color configuration was found to be differed with those on 3D color configuration.(4) While the main color is gray color with lightness exceed 88, the sum of lightness from two colors tends to be more “harmonious”. (5) While using warm grey colors with the lightness less than 88 as main colors, the smaller hue difference between two colors tended to be more “harmonious”. (6) While using cold and middle grey colors with the lightness less than 88 as main colors, the lower sum of lightness, the smaller hue difference and the greater difference of chroma between two colors tended to be more “harmonious”.
