Colour Lovers

Hello! Today I have a few colour combos I 'made up'. It's always useful to have some cool colour combos in mind when drawing/painting/creating an artwork. So, I have put together this little collection. I recently dug out my old watercolour set from the depths of my cupboard and decided to do a little painting. It ended up being a collection of pretty swatches that I knew would be useful for some colour-seeking human out there! Enjoy.

Carolina Blue // Lemon // Aquamarine // Amethyst

Aquamarine // Lemon // Lime // Cerise
Tangerine // Buttercup Yellow // Red Violet // Lime

Avocado // Dark Aqua // Turquoise // Tangelo
Aqua // Buttercup Yellow // Rose Red // Tangerine

Scarlett // Carolina Blue // Ebony // Tangerine

Buttercup Yellow // Magenta // Rose Red // Cobalt Blue

I think I enjoyed naming those colours a little too much. Don't you think colour names are so strange? Although it's super interesting to find out the origin of each colour's name. The colour 'cerise' (a pinkish-red) featured in the second colour combo is named after a white Argentine wine grape. You learn so much on the internet!

What's your favourite colour combo? Have a colourful day xo

  3. Too many to count!!! Gorgeous job!! And yes the names of colors are so very interesting! Such a lovely space you have here! Happy weekend to you! Nicole

  4. Another lovely post, Cory! I'm absolutely in love, your work never fails to amaze me :) x

  5. Hey you´ve a great blog!
    Please check out mine and if you want we can follow each other
    here on bloglovin and via GFC?
    Let me know, now it´s your turn.

  6. I personally am more drawn to pastel like colors...
    So perhaps lemon? The most basic and easy color to figure out, hehe

    I never touched or handled with watercolors before. I look forward to your watercolor works ^^

  7. I love color... I like anything with lime and if it's paired with orange... that much better :)

  8. I love these! My favorites are #2 and #4. I usually go for a greyscale color scheme, but we all need some color in our lives. This is the perfect color inspiration! And I think about color names constantly, how much fun it would be to name colors! Not even just colors, things like crayons and nail polishes. It's one of my dream jobs!

  9. I like this a lot! The 4th set is my favorite. The greens & turquoises are so pretty. One of my favorite hues.

  10. Adore these! I love the 1th, 4th and 6th. Those are incredible together! Can't believe I haven't matched these colors before!
