Happy New Year!
For this month’s Toad-Spo color scheme, I chose to celebrate the Pantone and Kona color of the year - PURPLE! Honestly, I’ve never really been a fan of purple. It’s a harder color to work with, but I’m seeing it everywhere lately and I can’t help but have a total change of heart. This color scheme is rich with vibrant bold and neon cool tones. If you remember December’s color scheme it was the exact opposite, but even though I typically lean towards warm tones doesn’t mean I shouldn’t experiment with all sorts of different color combos… experimenting is the best way to grow as an artist!
Not a fan of solids? Here are some prints that may work!
Deep Dive Into Red And Purple
Red and purple are definitely an unusual color combination. If you are looking to get away from your usual tried and true color combinations try giving the odd and somewhat extravagant color combo a chance - despite what the color wheel is telling you.
They aren’t analogous, and they aren’t complimentary… so what does that make them? Red and blue make purple… so that means red is purple’s mother (in a sense). Red dominates purple so the combo works best when the majority of the composition is made up of a tone of purple with hints or pops of a bright red. Let’s see below how I used the match in T&S patterns.
