Color Interaction: Hunter Kozol

This pattern is deepened by the blue and green, but those cool colors also make the yellows reds and light oranges stand out. The Bezold Effect happens when a lighter color is interwoven with darker contrasting colors and it makes the whole piece seem lighter. In contrast to this theory, another theory is at play. The Vibration and Value theory inserts that when two colors with strong value differences are on top of each other it makes the lighter color darken.  This mix of colors is difficult because they are all slightly desaturated. It continues it be difficult because it is made up of the three primary colors, red, blue, and green, but there are two different shades of both blue and green in this design. The only true complementary colors are red and one of the hues of green, and blue and one of the hues of blue and the light yellow hue. The peach color could be an analogous color with the hue of yellow. Few of these colors are their original value. All the colors seem to be a lighter value. Another factor that makes the peach and yellow hues stand out is their juxtaposition. The two colors, in the crisscrossing pattern, are mostly on top of the other colors. They are only in the background at three spots, but even still, mostly in the foreground.
