Complementary Color Schemes are Great!

Complementary colors are our focus with this post. This acrylic painting, shown below, uses the complements of red and green.
Yellow and violet are lovely together, as are blues and oranges. Notice the pastel pink below rather than real red. And notice the many shades and tints of green!

complements, color+scheme
Are you busy planting or potting for Spring?
Do you have a color wheel handy? Pairs of complements are found directly opposite each other on the color wheel.
Often it's wise to use one color predominantly and its complement as an accent.
I especially like red-violet with yellow-green...sooo pretty. Blue-violet is another fave, with touches of yellow-orange.

Try your own artwork with a complementary color scheme!
