patterns in color

First attempt, Signature color + White.

when I used these two color as they are, there was to much contrast, in terms of value difference, so to create a softer, more subtle feeling, I applied transparency.

Second, complementary colors = Violet + Yellow Green

Obviously, it shows strong contrast. But as I applied only these 2 colors to the pattern, it seemed to be too heavy, even dull. So the pattern lost its dynamic feeling which showed in the black and white version.

To lighten up this pattern, I added white as the third color. And here’s what I got from this experiment.

Third, Triad = Violet + Yellow Orange + Blue Green

Since yellow orange has the highest value, it seemed to make the horizontal arrangement of the curvy motives pop out more. Here are two versions of patterns in the triad color scheme.
