Complementary colors HELP!!!!


Date: Mon Aug 12 2002 - 11:11:43 PDT

I was studying color theory and making a sumary of the book "Art school an
instructional guide based on the teaching of leading art colleges" by
Colin Saxton and came accorss an exercise that I just cannot figure out
what it is asking me to do... I just can't get through this sentence!!!

Here is what it sais:

"...In the following exercise, you should begin by placing any simple
color next to its opposite (by that it means any pigment, any primary...?)
The opposite color must contain no traces of the primary color found in
the first of the complementaries which you have laid on....

white should be added to the darker hue of the combination in order that
both hues can be recognized simultaneously....

I am STUCK !!!!
