Mental Color Palette 1 - Unleash your inner child

Friday 1/20/17 time 4:38 PM

Here begins a new series on my blog - Mental Color Palettes.

They are ready-made color palettes to make color choices easier. In these palettes, there is always a certain theme helping you to feel better.

The first palette is inspired by the 1960s and 70s gig and festival posters. Groovy was the word for the 1960s "cool". If something was groovy, it was (among other things) marvelous, wonderful, excellent, hip and trendy.

Use this color palette when you want to let the inner child run wild and get crazy with colors. Using these bold color combinations makes you feel very much alive and makes your creativity flow. You can do nothing but smile when you color with this palette.

Groovy colors are very rhythmic. Try them out and see what is the right rhythm for you. With this palette anything can be colored with any color! The further the color is from the reality, the groovier the result!

Markers are well suited to this palette, because with them, you can color big surfaces quickly, and the colors are intense and strong. Eg. Sharpie markers have a lot of good, groovy colors. Let the colors glide on the paper, do not worry about a thing. But be careful – you can get addicted to this palette! Coloring with these colors is simply so much fun!

With this palette you will get poster-like results. While coloring, you may want to ponder what your ”poster's” message is. What does it tell you, or what is it that you want to tell the world through it.
