Color Crush Creative Palette 30: Fireside

I know it's the busiest time of the year. I am swamped and full of joy. And I'm still with Color Crush Creative 100%. I hope this color palette reminds you of the warm fuzzy feeling by the Fireside, sipping cocoa and hanging out with the ones you love. And I hope more than anything that you take time out for yourself to find peace in this busy time, create something and be grateful for all that has made 2017 a wonderful year!

Can I be honest? This color palette was a real challenge for me! The inspiration images i chose all have a delicate, almost romantic feeling to them, but them best I could pull off was a grungy, wanna-be street style painting. But it's good for me to see what all the Crushers are up against and this week, the challenge to create with this palette will be no exception.

The colors are easy to mix, though. Black is a given. A solid red like Pyrrole or Cadmium Med. will work along with white for the varying shades of pink. And Titan Buff is my go-to for the neutral. But the very light blue...I tested a few shades to get the right one. In the end I settled on a mix of Manganese Blue and a tiny bit of Payne's Gray with a whole lot of white...think 5% blue to 95% white. Go for it and tell me what you think!
