|Tangerine Dream quilted wall hanging - Cindy Grisdela|
In Tangerine Dream above, I used a variety of shades of orange, plus yellow, which of course is next to orange on the color wheel in the "warm" section. To add spice to the composition, I added touches of violet and red violet--opposite yellow and orange on the color wheel in the "cool" section. The combination of complementary colors and the irregularly cut shapes keep the eye moving around the piece. Variety is the key to making color interesting in your compositions--why use one shade of yellow or orange when you could use five or six!
