Colour Theories

20 Aug

Colour blocking and Greek women are not a match made in heaven, at least not yet.  Id say, most have now entered the colour combining stage where the colours are 2 and one of them is normally black.  So when I came across this Style Prompt post on the rules of colour blocking, I found it so comprehensive, I thought you too would love to check it out and just start experimenting.

“The most popular theory for combining colors is called the rule of two-thirds. How you achieve the rule of two-thirds starts by making an equilateral triangle (a triangle with 3 equal sides) on the color wheel. In it’s most basic form, the points at the ends of this triangle will be touching either red-blue-yellow or orange-green-purple. From there, you pick two of the three colors that the triangle touches. These colors will almost always harmonize together beautifully.”
So Girls, make your triangles and raid that closet for colours.  Athenian streets would then be such an interesting place.
