How to pick new colors to play with

by  | Jun 17, 2013 | 
Are you looking to create a new look for your home, your art or your jewellery. Try grabbing a new palette of colors to play with – but how do you break from the same ones you always grab due to familiarity, ease and comfort? How do you jump into fresh green, purples, aqua or pink for the first time?There is a very simple method:Step 1 – find a painting you adore.Step 2 – copy its color palette into your new creative plan.Here are some examples of art recently featured in my blog. Amazingly you find colors which you have never imagined using and palette entirely different to your normal approach.
