Working with color: Color theory is a fascinating field where science and art meet; further information can be found at http://www.colormatters.com/colortheory.html along with with many other sites and books.

For example, these are the three traditional pairs of opposite colors to use for contrast:

  blue (primary color) and orange (secondary color)  
  yellow (primary color) and purple (secondary color)
