Color Palettes of 2022

Here’s a collection of color palettes that made me happy. Color can infulence your mood.

Various papers painted with vibrant orange and pink tones

Fluorescent pink is amazing! Just a little of it makes my oranges brighter. I now have the pinks I want.

I love yellows and pinks. These shades remind me of spring.

Swatching all of my acrylic paints. I want to do a few color swatches for the fluorescent pink and what was the other color I purchased?

Swatching my new Phoenix watercolors. These are close if not the same as Cotman. This was another artist’s observation.

This napkin painted with markers and liquid watercolor came out cool.

This orange-yellow is warm and happy. I wonder what will happen when I mix a little fluorescent pink with o yellow.

This is a palette that explains what I hope to continue with my art. There are deep forest greens and warm oranges. I do want my art to be joyful, magical, and playful. The pink is a good example of the pinks I’ve been mixing. It’s a nice pink, but not bright.

In Love With Color

learn how to mix color with acrylic paints

Seriously, walking down the isles of Blick makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. Exploring a website isn’t as fun but getting art supplies in the mail is fun tool. Forest Green, Mauve and Indigo are on my list.

I like to think that my flowers and everything I paint feels like summer. To me summer is a time for being lazy, reflection, falling in love, the outdoors., peace and feeling free. I love it all! I want summer every day of my life. There should always be time to stroll. Yes I should add this to my list of projects. A poster? A print? Someday a book? Say! Let me right that down. Anyway that’s the story behind my paintings. Oh and there’s this need to feed my curiosity by using fun tools to paint. Wait till you see tomorrow’s post!

I’m trying to up my color game. I bought these Royal & Langnickel acrylics. Aside from the blue and green, the pink and yellow aren’t my tones. With a little mixing I was able to come up with colors I could work with.

the right color…

these days it’s blues and greens. I do bask in the glory of nature. I know there’ll be a few trees in the book…

What happended to this trunk? At a second glance, I can see the inspiration from all the unusually beautiful trees I’ve been collecting on pinterest. Yeah I like it.

The next step is to work on all of my blues and build the right color scheme.

Color you have my heart

Curiosity, imagination and paint, with you I shall never part

Pink and gray, will you work together?

Yes, oh I could do this forever.

Blue, pink and green, with every stroke you literaaly check my BLUES

I’ll create. I ‘ll CREATE

I have the power. I’ll show ’em this is my fate.

…there are no impossibilities
