New Colour Territory

Posted on March 20, 2014

I've been working on this new floral pattern on and off for about a week now, and I'm really happy with how it's turned out! My colour inspiration was a really bright floral pattern on a dark blue background with some bright pink pops. As you can see, it turned out completely different from what I planned!

I just kept fiddling with the colours and nothing seemed right. I ended up with this palette by using the 'Recolour Artwork' tool in Illustrator. Normally I go in and tweak each individual colour myself until I like what I see, but after what seemed like a hundred tweaks I started playing with the harmony rules at the top. From what I can see it takes the colour you have selected and shows you some of the of the harmony rules to got with it. I'm so glad I found this feature! I probably never would have picked these individual colours myself, but I love how they look together. Just shows that I need to brush up on my colour theory a bit.
