Harmonic Effect

Harmony in the sense of a beneficial, even comforting effect is a quite individual valuation. In order to create a harmonic play between colours on might subdue the primary [red – yellow – blue] and the complementary contrasts [red – green, yellow – violet, blue – orange] by replacing them with colours of the neighbourhood. An example: instead of a straight red tone and a neutral green one could combine the red with a blue-green or connect green to a red with an orange hue.
