Colour Schemes Musings


#1
Hey All,

I'm new here so be nice ;)

I'm having some trouble understanding colour schemes and wondered if anyone could clear it up for me.

I understand the different systems of colour schemes (Monochromatic, triad etc..)

However in the examples below

I don't understand why it is always 5 boxes of different colours. what does each box mean? what should be your primary colour? your accents? Is there a reason the colours are in a particular box?

If I missing something really obvious I apologise haha.

Thanks
