Color Palettes

It’s a bit of a no-brainer for an illustrator to say this… but I love colours. LUV. They’re probably a big reason why I ever chose to become an illustrator in the first place.

And I love working with them. In a wider sense they’re attached to everything – events, feelings and phases in my life.

Recently I’ve started to make color palettes from each week. I select colors from illustration assignments I’ve been working on, and then think of the colors my mind has been most busy on. I don’t pay attention all that much to shapes and elements – even though I pick out something new every time.

Here’s my autumn so far:

color-me-4th

color-me-3rd

color-me-2nd-pirita

color-me-1st-pirita-tolvanen
