Simultaneous Contrast and Complements

I have referred to the theory of simultaneous contrast in earlier blogs. Simultaneous contrast means that when 2 different components such as hues are in contact, each hue enhances the other. I mentioned this when discussing complementary colours on the colour wheel. Orange and blue hues are a complementary pair; they are opposite each other on the colour wheel. Therefore when orange is beside blue on your painting both colours are enhanced.
