my accidental palette.
I always do a rough colour sketch before I start colouring my work and I try to use different combinations of colours in those sketches. But often I find it hard to make that colour sketch really *work* in the final piece without being too monochromatic, or too all-over-place. This colour scheme is the one I’m happiest working in. It feels easy for me to get a good range of colours while maintaining harmony, and an overall vibe that I like. (Just some of the most obvious examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
But right now I am trying to get a colour scheme to work in a jungle and it is hard. Maybe I should just colour it all in pinks and golds and browns and then put a hue filter over it at the end….
