Cupcake #78 **sold**

Hmmm, pink and what would we call this, peach or salmon? You end up with one of the most complicated sounding phrases in the color theory world, "analogous discord." Analogous discord is what you get when you take two colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel (analogous colors) in this case red and orange, and add white to lighten the value of one or both so that they are either the same value. Or, as in this case, make the red lighter than the orange, this created the discord, because red is a deeper value than orange in it's untinted state. Or, you simple have a sweet pink cupcake on a simple peach background...however you want to look at it! Have a great weekend, and we'll be back on Monday!
