Color Interaction

1.  the same mid-tone achromatic gray appearing different against two different achromatic gray backgrounds — one high key, one low key

2. five of the same color appearing different against two different backgrounds

tip: Using two colors in the same family and a close complement make this slightly easier.

3. 1 example of two different colors appearing the same on different backgrounds

You can use paint or commercial paint chips. You’ll need to provide some way for the viewer to compare the colors.
