I've recently realised that most artists tend to have a preferred colour palette. While Audrey Kawasaki tends to stick to neutrals and naturals, Fafi goes bright, bright, bright almost every time.
I tend towards the brighter side of the spectrum. I adore grassy greens, eye-popping purples, flaming oranges, sun drenched yellows and rich pinks and reds.
When I deviate from these hues, I wind up with a piece that doesn't feel quite right. Recently I started on two pieces (which I haven't finished) where the colours just didn't fit. There's a dullness to them that isn't usually evident in my work.
Palettes that 'pop'
But here are the palettes I just adore. A rich rainbow of inspiration!
