Com­ple­men­tary colours

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Com­ple­men­tary colours are lo­cated on the op­po­site sides on the colour wheel. When placed next to each other, they cre­ate strong visual con­trast and re­in­force each other’s colour vi­brancy. The most com­monly used com­bi­na­tions are red and green, yel­low and vi­o­let, and blue and orange. The Im­pres­sion­ists used vi­brant colour brush­strokes next to each other to en­hance the light­ing. In this dig­i­tal sketch, I’ve ac­cen­tu­ated the blue colour on the space­ship’s hull by com­bin­ing it with orange en­gines.
