Welcome to Crafted Colour – Practical Colour Theory for Craft, which is aimed at helping you develop your Colour Confidence and Craft with Colour.
Sometimes you see an image and you just want to use all the colours! That’s what I felt like when I spotted this photo. I just love the brightly coloured panes of glass against the intense blue of the sky.
When I make a colour palette like this one, with so many different colour, I realise that it is really about colour placement. Grouping and combining colours together to create mini colour palettes with in the major one. In a way it is possible to use all the colours, you just have to be willing to break the rules, just a little.
Rules are made to be broken, you just have to pick and chose which rules to break and which ones to keep.
