Complementary Colours

Léran, Ariège – August 2019

As I was posting this picture I researched complementary colours and realised there was a difference according to websites and possibly cultures. Strictly speaking, the orange of these pruning shears should be complemented by blue. I assumed my orange was red. Some say that green is red’s complementary colour, some that violet is. Utterly confusing. Well, at the end of the day what matters is the result.

One thought on “Complementary Colours

  1. it’s all in the tone and shade and then how individuals perceive them. The handles are orangey-red and the door is green with a blue undertone 🙂
