I do love the tension created by adjacency of similar colors and similar values. It makes me happy.

Here’s an example of a palette of reds that I find especially visually satisfying. Perylene Red, Quinacridone Magenta, Cadmium Red, and Cadmium Orange.

You see, you can’t please every one. So, you’ve got to please yourself.”
