Color Wheel Complements

“Complement” is a concept used in color theory.  Colors across from each other are considered complementary.

If complements are added together, they produce white.  It might be said they supply what the other color lacks perfectly.

Complementary colors when used together provide a pleasing contrast.

A very common pairing is red and green, the Christmas colors.
