Project Description

For the class project, please present one colour combination idea that you have developed from one of the pages in your colour journal. Illustrate your colour inspiration through an image or images and define the colours you find interesting together. You could go onto extend your colour journal into a colour moodboard, or inspiration board. Your project could be based around an era in time, a season, or a theme, but you may just want to represent several colours that you find new and novel. Please tell us a little about your thinking behind the colour work you present, perhaps why you find your chosen colours so inspiring, why they are personal to you or how you came to this colour conclusion…

 

Please post your project in the Project section. Please feel free to share your work on social media, but if posting to Instagram please remember to tag me in (@clairepicarddesign) so I can see and comment on your work, and to a credit my class (#clairepicardskillshare) would be much appreciated.

 

In addition, Please share with us all in the community section a few pages from your colour journal, and please if you’re stuck at all let us all try to help you! Post in the community section so that we can all make suggestions as to where you could go from here. Please feel free also to use the colour boards that I have created for you here for your own personal use. Please do not however reproduce or publish these publicly in any way.

Have fun...I can't wait to see your colour work! xxx
