Color Works
.)The harmony used in the twoscarves shown on the next pageis a tetrad. A tetrad uses two pairsof complementary hue familiestogether. Imagine superimposing arectangle on top of a color wheel; thecorners of the rectangle would fallon the hue families of the tetrad. Thehue families used for this project areblue-violet and yellow-orange withblue-green and red-orange.
