The Color Scheme Game … Another example of using neutralized hues in a color scheme.

Family Treasures No. 24, Wooden Scribe

The color scheme is Semi Triad, two complements with one color two units to the left or right of one of them.  The dominant color is Yellow-Orange.  I began with full intensity saturation of the complementary hues, yellow-orange and blue-violet, in the foreground.  As I worked my way back, I neutralized the yellow-orange for the geometric cell shapes and moved toward the blue-green in the wooden scribes.
