Creating colour palettes

Finding colour palettes is one of my favourite things to do. Fortunately it sometimes fits in with one of my other favourite things to do - taking my insane dog to the farm to chase rabbits. She’s really daft and hasn’t a clue how to catch a rabbit, but it’s hilarious watching her try.

Often the colours on the farm are crisp and beautiful. At the moment it’s all muted tones of greys and yellows because it’s the Australian summer. A few months ago there were beautiful little wild hedgerow flowers everywhere. I took photographs and used the Illustrator eye dropper to pick out a super pretty colour palette.

Then I had a play with the colour mixer in Illustrator, also one of my favourite things to do! This is a pattern in my Small Adventures collection. It’s the same collection of colours, one using the brighter tones and the other with a limited number of colours.
