Complementary colours

The complementaries red and green can look good together (the images above are from The Faeroes) or they can really clash. As both colours , in the same saturation, also have the same degree of brightness it it is necessary to consider the amount of each colour in use. Using the same amount of each colour can cause the colours to vibrate.

The small samples below (embroidery and paper) show how different the finshed effect can be.
