What is it about jewel tone colors that makes a piece like this dance? One piece is the complement pairs, even small areas of them--e.g., the red/green pairs and a bit of blue/orange. Black gives it some depth, as do the shade variations in the wools themselves. I've studied some about color, but feel like the more one learns, the less one really knows. In the end, it's enough sometimes just to recognize that this is the nature color--marvelous and mysterious and primal and necessary."
