Pair colours that match

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?
