Color combinations

The perception of a single color is different than perception of the very same color in combination with other colors. In the real world, it's very rare to see a single color. Usually we perceive a combination of multiple colors – some are dominant, some are minor, some are similar, close to each other – while others are contrast and accented. In graphic design it's not easy to pick up color combinations to create desired effect or emotion, though there are some techniques from the classical color theory helping us to find best supplements for a selected color.
