As artists, we continually pair colours that match. Whether it’s on canvas, a studio set up for a photo shoot, interior decorating and even fashion. It is true that some colours compliment each other more, but are there any 2 colours that do not match?
One time when I was in Grade One, we were colouring with wax crayons, and we had to pair colours that matched.
I paired red and orange.
My teacher nearly had a heart attack!
‘No! Red an orange do not match! Red matches with blue!’
I could not understand it. I remember holding the crayons in my little 5-year-old-hands, and my beautiful creation on my art paper. It reminded me of an African Sunset.
But hey, if she says it does not match, it does not match! Right?
