Using complimets to work for each other...
An example of using blue and orange (compliments)to work for each other. The ocean water is ultramarine blue, dash of cobalt blue and a dash of cadmium orange to tone down the blue.
The waves are titanium white with a tiny dash of cad orange. The blue sets the stage for the orange tinted white waves to stand out. If you want a yellow highlight to really stand out, then surround it very subtly with its compliment... purple. See Where I'm going with this? Tone down bright yellow with a dash of... purple. Tone down bright purple with a dash of yellow.
I suggest practicing 'setting the stage' for compliments to work for each other. Experiment with this! you will learn soooooooo much from practicing this!
