Chapter 6: Complementary Colors

Chapter 6: Complementary Colors

Learn the basics of color theory in this brief introductory course! This chapter covers complementary colors, and while this has nothing to do with colors telling each other they look good, it has everything to do with colors *making* each other look good! In this video, Ana teaches you how to use complementary colors in your paintings, from making each color pop by placing them close together to creating a neutral color by mixing equal parts of both.
