Limited palettes 🎨: Restriction is a good thing


I’m experimenting with colors in ways that I really haven’t before. I had lots of classes in the past years of school oh so long ago. So, the idea of limiting a color palette or monochrome is not new to me. I just never really dove into it before. A couple of experiments here using 3 analogous colors, plus layers of black and white for simple shaping.

I kind of like it a lot. Makes it seem planned. On the iPad program Procreate, the color chooser has several different modes, but only limited space to save anything. There a color wheel and it gives different combinations of colors you can use for chromatic complements. It is pretty good in theory, but in the real world…. Judge for yourself.
