Sometimes for compositional interest I will pair items of complementary colors, as in this painting the yellow of the lemon with the purple of the lavender. By placing complementary colors together a visual vibration occurs heightening interest and actually enhancing the perception of each color.

A lot of things in everyday life are made up of complementary colros such as, red and green in Christmas decorations, and blue and orange stripes found on rugby shirts.

If you look around, I am sure you to will notice complementary color combinations in all areas of your life...

These were from a bouquet I picked up at the Old Town farmer's market. I love the variety of flowers available and it is difficult not walking away with too many flowers. I was disciplined and thoroughly enjoyed having these colorful blooms in my house this week. In fact a few flowers are still holding their own!
