Week 2 - COMPOSITION: Color Harmony
[Get out your color wheel. Do opposites attract? Can there be harmony with opposite colors? 
Does the Hulk wear purple pants? Mix warm and cool colors.]

This week's prompt should have been an easier one, but it was a challenge for me. Isn't that exactly the point of these exercises? Saturated color is really not my aesthetic; in fact, I often pull color out my images. Even when I do focus on color, I prefer monochromatic palates. When I look at the color wheel, I don't really like the combination of complimentary colors with two exceptions: pink+green and blue+yellow like this intensely blue sky against the building's golden bricks.
