In previous posts, I have written about the elements of art. Contrasting elements enhance each other. This is also called simultaneous contrast. Artists frequently use contrasts of hues in their paintings. In the detail of my painting, Waterfall in the Mist, the muted blue color enhances its complementary color orange. Other elements of art when used in contrast create enhancement. The solid texture of the rocks enhances the flow of the water and vice versa. Contrasts of value (gray scale) or intensity of colors enhance each other. A triangular shape will be more evident amongst a number of square shapes. In the above painting by Claude Monet, the blue hue enhances the orange hue.
