Multi Model Color Blender

With the color blender you can blend two colors to generate one to eight intermediate colors. The equal gradation of color component values very likely produces a harmonious color set. You still need to experiment but it's fun and quite easy to get to a pleasing result. To tweak each individual color click on the links to the color picker or the color converter.

The color picker interface allows you to set the source color (1st color to blend) and the destination color (2nd color to blend). Color blending then depends on the set amount of intermediate colors and the color model. Each color model has its strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes it's surprising how beautiful the output becomes by changing the color model for blending.

About the Color Models

L*a*b* blending is similar to RGB blending but you can easily notice how the chroma components influence blending.

HSL, HSL+ and pHSL
For all HSL color models there is clockwise and anti-clockwise blending which depends on whether the hue value of the source color is smaller than the hue value of the destination color.

This color model uses equal gradation of (relative) luminance instead of lightness. For eight intermediate colors the computation gets a little heavy. So this could be the right moment to download and install a fast / up to date (portable) browser.

This is the inhouse developed Painter's HSL color model covering a subset of HSL with the intention to potentially select more aesthetically appealing colors.

When you select this color model, source color and destination color get converted as well.
