Noticing and identifying color interactions in your surroundings strengthens the lessons learned when playing The Color Scheme Game.

Double Complementary Color Scheme of Fruit

I am visiting a friend in South Portland, Maine.  The design of brightly colored fruit on the cloth beside the sink brings a smile to my face as I brush my teeth each morning upon rising and each evening before I slip into bed.  The red and green are full intensity, complementary hues.  The yellow and purple are slightly neutralized complementary hues.  The yellow and purple separate the red and green from one another while also supporting them without competing for attention.  This is an excellent example of a design using a double complementary color scheme.
