My 2014 Color Palette

Hi there. How are you? 
I can't seem to get enough of this color palette lately. I'm digging that little pop of neon red against the aqua and brown. I've started some new abstracts featuring these hues.

These pieces still need a little touch of ink embellishment, but I'm not quite sure what that will look like yet. I'm going to let the ideas marinate in my brain for a bit. Trying hard not to rush or be too impulsive.  I'll be sure to share these when they're all done.

What colors are speaking to you these days? Do share! Have a fab week. Ta-Ta!

Gray. Yellow. White. Black.

Gray. Yellow. White. Black.

I am currently enamored with this color scheme. I've used these colors in my last three pieces, and will continue for a bit.

Yellow is not a color that I usually embrace in my work. In fact, its probably my least favorite of colors on a regular basis. There's just something about yellow that works with gray, mellows it out or something.

I've also been trying to work on simplifying in these last few pieces. Throughout my artistic career, I've had a tendency to over-embellish, do a little too much. I'm really working on that and embracing the fact that "less is more". You'll hopefully notice more negative space and less pen in these works. I'm letting the cut shapes speak for themselves.

That's all for now. Happy Monday.
