Color Palette

As I save up for a new camera, I took the weather today as a deciding factor for me to backup and go through some of my old files. I think that in the near future I will post some of my Taiwan favorites that I haven’t really had a chance to post over here as I wait out this dry camera and wet typhoon spell. But first, let me also mention that I decided to try something new out as well.

Inspired by my design seeds post yesterday, I decided to take some time today to learn how to do that myself. I remember for my Picture Color class this summer, one of my classmates posted a tutorial on it, but I hadn’t had time then to really go over it. I went over our archived posts on the message board and found it. So, without further ado, here are a couple of color palettes I made today. I took both from my FYE Inspiration file, and you can find more about that here.

It was a lot of fun to learn how to add, pull, and place the colors in their own little boxes, and I think that in future I may do a few more of these as well. (I think I may start to do five colors in the next round, though.)

If you are interested in learning how to make these, you can check out this lovely tutorial with circular swatches here. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. I just subscribed to “Design Seeds” – isn’t that a wonderfully inspirational site? And your creations are beautiful. I think it is amazing to see what color schemes exist within our photos – ones that we don’t see until they are simplified into the basic squares of color. You have given me the desire to try this as well. Thanks for sharing your experiment!
