Color Theory and Balance

The values in this photo are nearly opposite, notice how the high contrast between the dark of the evergreens and the light of the backlit fall leaves is emphasized and echoed by the dark streaks of tree trunks and branches. The asymmetry of the photo still holds appeal because the large dark tree is echoed by the smaller dark tree and the light leaves are anchored by dark trunks. When making a modern quilt remember that interspersing your color values in a balanced way will give you a harmonious whole.
