Actually, Yellow complements blue. Good thing it is a yellow pencil.

it`s because the pencil is orange and the paper is blue. Orange is the complimentary color of blue.

This is also how you can save money in printing ads, by simply using one color and splitting it into groups of its different shades.

Technically, you only chose one color, so you only pay for one color.

Thank you into to journalism.

What happens if you cover all three transitions?

It`s called "Corn-Sweet Edge" All you do is make one row a single shade lighter and the one next to it a single shade darker and your brain interprets the transition and just assumes the whole section is lighter/darker. Still cool, though!

If you stare at one of the folds where the next shade starts it works too.

My eyes were struggling to see the difference in shades lol. I was able to see the different shades even when he put the pencil but every now and then my eyes would lose it and I would see the illusion. O.o

I thought it was a folded piece of paper.. and when the pencil is on the crease it bends it to make it the same colour..

I don`t mean to spoil this so early, but I can`t help myself.

The 4 shades don`t have a solid color, they fade from slightly darker to slightly brighter from left to right.
