Colour Inspiration

Turquoise Boat - NB

These are the colours that are inspiring me today ~ turquoise, aqua, and cyan ~ colours on a sea worn boat in the harbour….

Indigo,Turquoise & Rust - NB

Above we have some bleached dark indigo denim (dark indigo denim doesn’t bleach white, it goes a dark cream colour that you see above) along with some cotton dyed with cerulean blue acrylic paint and some rusty stuff.

They’re colours that complement each other so well. Underneath the image I used Photoshop to “paint” colour samples with colours extracted from the image. In real painting terms the colours I see in the image are Indigo, Cerulean Blue, Buff Titanium and Burnt Sienna ~ a beautiful inspiring combination….

I may have a play with these colours later this evening….

  1. I know that I’ve said it before, but these are some of my very favorite colors, Evelyn. I just love the colors of the sea and the rust complements them so perfectly.

  2. wow! gorgeous. this has been one of my fav palettes since a trip to Broome, Western Australia back in 1999 ……
