Short Artistic Rant

Sometimes, despite what color theory says, opposite colors on the color wheel just look horrible.

Rant complete.

I think a lot of that comes from the paints we use not actually being the chromatic ideals that colour theory is based on. So we're getting something that's a bit off from the actual opposite, leading to an effect that's more or less the visual equivalent to hitting a tritone when you want a perfect fifth.
