November Progress


This is the design completed.  The colors have been placed around the pattern to keep the eye of the viewer moving about the design.
Most of my color combinations favor using complimentary or split complimentary colors. Complimentary colors are two hues exactly opposite on the color wheel, ex: red and green.  A split complimentary color harmony is a variation - the base color and the two colors adjacent to its complement, ex: red, blue-green, and yellow-green.
Here I've essentially used a harmony closer to a, yellow-orange, and blue-green.  Or, yellow, and blue.  Triads are three colors evenly spaced around the color wheel.
Next is the background.  I have some antique black wool that will make the colors of the design pop.
