Do you remember the color wheel that you have encountered at least once during your school days? Complementary colors are the opposite pairs on the wheel. Including my favorite match-up, cool blue and punchy orange, all the pairings are dynamic and pleasing to human eyes when used together. Many artists use this simple but highly effective rule of color schemes when producing artworks in order to create visual and emotional balance, or the opposite - to provoke an unsettling chaos. The high contrast of complementary colors at full saturation creates a satisfying and vibrant look, whereas toned-down analogous colors deliver unity and stability. Let your eyes relax and travel through 30 carefully selected works. Feel the dynamic energy the colors exude in together!
