Playing around with Colours

Zazzle offers throwpillows now, and I could not resist doing some of them. It was fun playing around with colours in photoshop.

Browse Zazzle for a different pillow.

There are two very helpful websites for anyone who likes to try out combinations of colours.

  1. www.colourlovers.com
    Registration is free, and you can create palettes and patterns. You also can browse through loads of inspiring palettes, and as each palette gives you the hex code of each colour, you can give your designs exactly the same colour in case you like it or like the combination. I did it exactly the same way with the colours of the three fish in the above example.
  2. ElvanOnline
    On the webpage you find a very useful colour scheme generator. Select the main colour and then it gives you the analogous or complementary colours. You can also increment the lightness or go darker with the colour. Here also the hex code is shown for each colour.
