Exploring Color - Complementary


For each color on the wheel there is a natural complement color that lies directly opposite (red and green, or blue and orange, or yellow and purple)

By combining varying tints, tones and shades of these two opposite colors, a bold, dramatic effect is obtained. Warm colors have a cool complement and the cool colors have warm compliments.

The complementary color scheme can be split, by choosing a color (blue) and using color on each side of its complement (yellow/orange and red/orange)
