Color formula 1

Mittwoch, 21. Februar 2007

Oh, too dull, seems insipid and needs definitely more salt and pepper, perhaps a little bit chilli



But this one has got too much sweetener. Bah, such a toothache ...



For me nature is a perfect guide to find colors with brilliance which aren't garish at all. Just look at a picture of landscape or a flower like this marigold.

This seems to be the right luminosity to me




I found this wonderful example for my "color formula":

Isn't it a beauty? Simply using scraps in easy pieced blocks, but wonderful contrasting colors.
(I found it as an advertisement of a German manufacturer for quilting equipment)
