Complimentary Colors

A Complimentary is the opposite color on the color wheel - 
it can mean that they can fight each other or they can get along really well....

Cream is the opposite of Old Violet and in this case get along really well!

With these two Complimentary Colors, one is primary and one is secondary. 
Here, Cream (the primary color) is made from 
yellow with lots of white in it and 
Old Violet (the secondary color) 
is made from blue and red. 

Mix them together and you get Paloma
a lovely purple grey.
