Take Inspiration with Ultra Violet Swatches

Sending you a Heliotrope Hello!

 

Last week we talked about the newly announced color of the year – Ultra Violet – and how you can use it as a creative inspiration.

 

To help you visualize, I put together a few inspiration images with related color swatches. To make it even easier to use, they’re together in this handy PDF download.

 

Some of the images produce vibrant palettes and others are more muted, but they all have shades of purple in common.

Try it!

Find, or take, a picture that speaks to you. Then, study the image for the colors that  call out to you – it helps to squint – and sample 3 to 6 of them with paint, markers, colored pencils, etc.

It may take more than one set of colors to get a combination you like. The resulting palette is cohesive and makes a perfect start to a project.

In the meantime, get started with these swatches and see what you can make!
Tell me about your creations – I love to hear from you!
