While I can’t proclaim to have read through dozens of books about color, the few I have read, all mention different exercises you can do to practice working with color and develop a better eye for it.
As an artist you are only a link in a chain, and whatever you find or whatever you do not find, you can find comfort in it.
We all draw inspiration from the works of others. At the same time we want to stay away from outright copying those works. Sometimes without intention we cross into the latter. How can we avoid copying, while still taking something from the designs that inspire us?
As I’ve said on a few occasions, I don’t consider color one of my strengths as a designer…yet. It’s one of the reasons I set studying color as a goal for this year. On Monday I began sharing my new exploration of color and I mentioned working on a color tool to help me. I also said I would show it to you today.
