RGB color theory (it’s really a fact but for some reason it’s called a theory) states that complementary colors are those of an additive and subtractive color that are 180 degrees from each other on the color wheel. Thus the complementary colors are Red/Cyan, Green/Magenta, Blue/Yellow.
Complementary colors in a projected system can create white or neutral density e.g. they cancel each other out. But when I see them as non-projected light, they often vibrate.
I had just left Steve McCurry’s printing studio and saw a yellow taxi against a blue wall and thought, COMPLEMENTARY! The ad for the Blue Man Group both reinforced the color theory and also gave life to the composition.
