That’s right! I have a degree in graphic design and I want to help readers who think they’re not creative or that they’re afraid of color to start to get over those fears.
To learn about color, you can start by looking at colors in your natural landscapes and objects around you. Here are some tips to get started:
1. Observe natural scenes and objects: Spend time in nature and observe the colors you see in plants, flowers, trees, rocks, and other natural objects. Pay attention to the combinations of colors you see and how they blend together.
2. Take photos or make sketches: Take photos of natural scenes or objects that you find particularly inspiring. Or, make sketches of the colors that stand out to you.
3. Identify color palettes: Look closely at the colors in your photos or sketches and try to identify color palettes. A color palette is a range of colors that work well together. You can identify a color palette by looking at the dominant colors, complementing colors, and contrasting colors in your pictures.
4. Experiment: Once you’ve identified a color palette, experiment with mixing colors in your arts or craft projects. Try different combinations of colors to see how they work together.
5. Practice: Keep practicing and experimenting with different colors and combinations. Over time, you will develop a better understanding of how to pair colors from nature together in your artwork and craft projects.
Remember that there’s no right or wrong way to pair colors from nature. It all depends on your personal preference and the emotional response it brings to you. That’s how I approach designing my wreaths and centerpieces.
I hope this helps you begin to feel a little more confident about color to help you make amazing projects.
