Borders and Framing Color

Colors often appear brighter and more vibrant when they are bordered by frames. Black lines are commonly used to enhance colors in applications like stained glass. This tactic creates a certain effect, as shown below, and prevents color clashing. Notice that the drawing on the left colors appear significantly brighter and pure.
