Spring, yes!!?! It feels like it’s finally arrived!
I was certainly dressed with anticipation for spring this day, however I really wanted falling snow for this shoot. I love the contrast between the bleak background neutrals and my massive color-splash ensemble!
I needed to add some brightness to the day, so I chose a combination of analogous colors in different tints. Analogous colors are groups of three or four colors that are next to each other on the color wheel:
Red, red-violet, violet and blue-violet are all adjacent on the color wheel and pairing them together in combinations makes for a tasty harmony of hues. Pink is simply red mixed with white. I personally think pink+purple is a better aesthetic combo than red+purple.
I loved creating this painting and the challenge of matching the colors and vibe to the wardrobe pieces in the photographs. Thankfully, we have a lot more natural brightness to look forward to!
Enjoy my friends and go put on some COLOR; spring is here!
