Can you see the difference? I added a few more nuances. The truth is, there is hardly any white in nature. The sunlight is what makes things lighter in value, but rarely is there a pure white glare on anything. Even though the fence was highlighted with sunlight from the left, it is actually a purple-gray shade, even in the light, which popped the color against the yellow-green grasses. Learning the color wheel seems like left-brain stuff, but that's really the way we see color in nature. Analogous, complementary, are the ways light and color work together to create "reality."
