Photoless Friday (24) guessed it...more Owen Jones on color

We're heading into the home stretch, really we are!

Here is the next design advice snippet from Owen Jones' "Grammar of Ornament":

PROPOSITION 25: [color, cont.] When two different colours are juxtaposed, they receive a double modification; first, as to their tone (the light colour appearing lighter, and the dark colour appearing darker); secondly, as to their hue, each will become tinged with the complementary colour of the other.

When we finish going through them all, and you've had time to think about each of them and "digest" them, we'll try some designing experiments together.

'Til the next Photoless Friday...Enjoy!
