Colours in Fine Art - Split Complements & Temperature







Burpee Tomatoes on my Zazzle T-Shirt and my original painting.
Colour is an element in art. In my painting, Burpee Tomatoes, the main colours are green and orange. These colours are split complementary colours. The colours are on each side of the complements. The complement for green is red. The complement for orange is blue. Since split complements have some of the complementary colour, each colour enhances the other. For example, the split complements for the colour, orange, are blue green and blue violet. Both split complements have blue; blue is the complement of orange. The temperature of the colour orange is warm. The temperature of the colour green is cool. Again, these contrasts in temperature enhance each colour. These colour contrasts create vibrant colours.

I sell my original paintings and fine art greeting cards at my Etsy internet shop. Fine art prints are sold at my Fine Art America shop. Links to these internet shops are at the top of this site.
