Mixing colors – green, purple and yellow



How often do you pay attention to the mix of colors in a design? Think about it now! Do you agree that the beauty of an art work depends on the artist’s ability to combine the perfect elements such as materials and colors?

Just look at these pieces and observe how well purple goes with green and yellow.

I rest my case.

PS: my favorite game these days – finding a correspondence between the colors displayed on Matisse’s Snail collage and real designs. 🙂
