Before I query the audience, let me start by explaining what I want to accomplish. I am a web developer, and one of my current projects involves creating a system to help the end-user determine complimentary, split-complimentary, triad, and analogous colors for a given color.
This is quite simple when using the RGB Color Space, because each primary color (as well as secondary) has equal representation (hue range) on the wheel. However, I would like to offer the ability to do the same using the RYB Color Space. However, because it is based off of light wavelength, some colors are more “stretched” and others “compressed” on the palette. Because of this, I can’t think of a concept to make this quantifiable.
Anyone have any ideas?
