Collage Obsession: Complementary Colors

Altered photo of lilies given to me by my son one Mother's Day. Other credits: Kim Klassen texture.

According to this week's Collage Obsession challenge: "Research has shown that different combinations of complementary colors become balanced when used in different proportions. 3:1 for yellow to violet… 2:1 for blue to orange… 1:1 for red to green." We were challenged to use complementary colors in these proportions (see below).
