Let's make a new palette of colours!
Phew, a June palette post, making it just in the nick of time. Not that May's one actually happened… oops.
Each month, I am taking a photograph I quite like aesthetically and choosing a colour palette from it. Then from there, taking those colours and converting it to DMC flosses. Again, just in case [legal reasons and yada yada]; I'm not endorsed by the company DMC, I just love the quality and options provided.
I really love the website Unsplash for high-quality, free-to-use, random stock photos (hence why I'm constantly referring back to the artist of whichever photo I do use!) so let's keep it going with making a DMC palette from another gorgeous photo via there?
So now we have our colour scheme, let's convert these RGB colours into DMC colours!
|196, 240, 239||828|
|244, 158, 109||722|
|191, 103, 66||435|
|90, 42, 36||3857|
|189, 21, 16||817|
Vibrant, earthy, loud palette.
I don't know what I expected when I put this image into my palette maker but it really, honestly, wasn't something like this! Way more earthy and bright than I expected.
So keeping in mind there 16,777,216 different available colours when using the RGB scale (256×256×256) and only 500 colours in the DMC selection, sometimes getting the absolute perfect colour can be a bit tricky. Sacrifices and allowances must be made.
Looking at these colours together, I'm not sure what I would make from them, to be honest! What kind of things can you see yourself making from these colours?
