I took a picture of this bar area before this restaurant stopped carrying gluten free noodles. I finally dug the photo out, because of the bright and cheerful nature and had some fun creating palettes.
The default palette was less neutral-y than usual, which was a pleasant surprise. The red tones are an interesting addition. I also noticed that the program didn’t stick exclusively to the edges.
The monochromatic palettes were interesting. Yes, I made more than one this time. As you can see there are both cools and warms. I know the green is not warm, but it has a kind of warm feel to it – a bit mossy, I guess. Perhaps there is a yellow undertone giving it a bit of a warm feel.
I like some of the blues in the blue palette quite a bit.
The two pink-red palates are similar, but a little different. As usual, I was really surprised at the colors that came out of the tool.
I really played around with the other palettes. I really like the blue and gold in palette n.2. The rest of the colors are kind of meh, though the greys alone or as a background would probably be great.
The one above looks like a Japanese stationery store or a bag of sweets or a girl’s party when she is just getting out of the pink stage.
I thought I had better create a palette of neutrals. I know there are some of you out there who love neutrals (well done they can be great). I think this one is much more interesting than some I have seen. I won’t make a quilt – or anything – from the colors, though.
What will you make?
I use the Palette Builder Tool on the Play-Crafts site. Thanks to Anne Sullivan for making it available.
