Kontrast means contrast

The impact of colours develops mainly through their interaction with their surroundings. What are the colours and structures of the immediate neighbourhood? Often, a contrast may come up, which enhances the single colour. There is, for example, the ‘complementary-contrast’ [pair of: red – green, yellow – violet, blue – orange], further more ‘bright – dark-contrast’ [white – black, yellow – blue, lilac – chocolate brown] or the ‘cold – warm – contrast’ [blue – red, turquoise – sunflower yellow, lemon – purple].]
