Happy Spring Equinox! The actual time occurs in about 4 hours or so. To celebrate the day, I have a Spring Complementary Colors Card for you. The featured colors are Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral from the Red-Orange Group and Pistachio Pudding from the Green Group. Pistachio Pudding is slightly toward the Blue-Green side, so it counts as Complementary.
For purposes of this article, I consolidated the Red-Orange (Calypso Coral) and Orange-Red (Crisp Cantaloupe) groups into the traditional Red-Orange. Confidentially, I split the groups originally because I wanted to be able to fit all the colors where they belong on my rectangular “Color Wheel”. Of course, Chocolate Chip is a Neutral and so doesn’t count!
All three colors are pastel, so the harmonious contrast is softer than the pure Red-Green Complementary contrast. I’m very fond of pastels for Spring!
