What is Color Blocking?

Color Blocking is combining different colors that support and compliment each other. Are you brave enough to try it?

From the Author of ACHICDIRECTION- if your having trouble blocking colors try complimentary color blocking. Why? Complimentary colors are natural opposites so they work very well together. Wikepedia states that Complementary colors are pairs of colors that are of “opposite” hue in some color model. The exact hue “complementary” to a given hue depends on the model in question, and perceptually uniformadditive, and subtractive color models, for example, have differing complements for any given color. Check out the color wheel below to reference any colors that would look good blocked together.
