Color Harvest: Orange & Indigo

23 Feb

While digging through my Pinterest inspiration boards, planning my features for next week, I noticed a color trend in a few of my pins.  It’s funny how our minds gravitate toward certain palettes some days, isn’t it?  Apparently, my eyes are loving the combination of orange and indigo these days!  I thought you might enjoy a few examples from my boards..

Any color combos you’re enamored with these days?  Guess this native Florida girl can’t escape the Orange & Blue!

    When I was in my early twenties and drawing everyday with felt pens I discovered that orange and blue were one of my favorite color combinations. I still love orange and blue and my most recent art quilt has some orange and blue as an accent.

    From a fellow Florida Gal – Gooooooo Gators!! Yes, those color still give me a thrill. I have painted lots of Birds of Paradise for that reason. Also, notice how much orange is in clothing these days.
