I think I'm always dreaming about colors, how they fit, what's pleasing to the eyes...then I go about rambling through my stash searching for things that match the colors I'm thinking of at the moment. It's not new that navy and coral are quite lovely together but that didn't stop me from playing around and making some inspiring things. The color of the year is purple but the color of the moment just might be navy!
And off I was to paint with some blue watercolors and peach gelatos.
My first love is collage so I was happy to make a little collage card using navy and a few coral colored papers. I love the simplicity and the organic feel of the flowing watercolor. I could paint for days using watercolors. They have a funny way of surprising you! I've been working with them for awhile and have only just now started figuring out how to manipulate them better. I didn't use any glitter on this card just some very dark blues. Watercolor reminds me of clouds in that it goes where it wants and you follow only to be happy at what you see!
I think this set of colors is one of my top favorites, along with a little blush pink. Wine might be a good color to put in the mix as well!
Hopefully I can get around again to share some more lovely inspiration. We have had some awful weather today so taking photos might be kind of tricky. I hope everyone is staying warm and dry. I'm off for some tea and maybe a little more painting...Take care
