|Pantone Color of the Year 2009|
"Harmony implies balance, symmetry of forces." - Itten
"When the eye beholds a color it is roused into activity, and its nature, no less inevitably than unconsciously, to produce another color forthwith, which in conjunction with the given one encompasses the totality of the color circle. A particular color incites the eye, by a specific sensation, to strive for generality. In order then to realize this totality, in order to satisfy itself, the eye seeks, beside any color space, a colorless space wherein to produce the missing color. Here we have the fundamental rule of all color harmony." - GoetheColor has different visual weight based on the hue, value and chroma. Munsell's example below illustrates the concept of balance. Note that red is winning the visual tug of war, as it is more intense. This means that in a painting or design, more blue-green would be needed to balance the red.
|Munsell Example of Visual Balance|
Use as few hues as possible. Use a high value with a low value. Use a strong chroma with a weak chroma. - MunsellThe below diagrams illustrate color relationships that result in harmony.

|Munsell's Elliptical Path|
Munsell Color Theory creates a three dimensional model for understanding color relationships. This model is known as a tree.
