Thank you for your contribution to http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=webauthor&qid=20140453 !

You gave good resources for both theory and practice, which is exactly what I'd asked for.  The other contributors gave info from their personal experience

I'd promised to accept a comment as an answer today.  It is considered good practice to keep a question open only until a good, workable solution is proposed.  You may notice the moderators enforcing time limits if some people tend to leave questions open for months even though reasonable solutions have been proposed.  There have been some problems if questioners don't like truthful answers such as "You can do it but it will take a huge amount of work on your part.", "You are not offering enough points for the amount of work required for us to provide a complete solution.", or, worst, "It can't be done.".

Thanks Ernest :)  I hope some of those resources helped.  I just wanted to add some things to make it easier for the responce (I was somewhat rushed in my answer yesterday. :)

The complimentary colors are:
Blue and Orange
Purple and Yellow
Red and Green

From there you can consider that Orange-Red and Blue-Green are complimentary.

You can also think in color harmonies of Warm and Cool Colors.  The Warm Colors are in the Red Yellow and Orange familes, the Cool in the Blues, Greens, and Purples.  Cool colors tend to recede from the viewer, and warm colors tend to come forward in a picture.  Thus, if you want information to really stand out,use a warm color.  Be careful, bright yellows are often hard to read unless they are placed on a dark complimentary background.

I also wanted to leave a quick note to be careful when using Reds, Greens, and Oranges.  Make sure that the contrast of these colors with any other colored used with them is significant.  This is because color blind people will often only see them as greys (based on their saturation and intensity) and if they are too similar in intensity to the colors used with them you may unintentionally create an unreadable site.

Also, a small trick I do to insure contrast and color readability is that I will create my graphics and then view them at the various color levels available on my computer (I use Windows, and this is done by right clicking the desktop, choosing Properties, then choosing Appearance and changing the colors.)  I also will often increase a decrease the normal setting of contrast on my monitor as well as it's brightness to insure that all fonts are suitably contrasted.  


There, that should help you out a little more until you can locate the best resources.  After all of this I might be making a tutorial :)  We will see! :)  Good luck and thanks. :)
