Summer Color Trends 2019

Summer Color Trends 2019 - student project

Thank you Irina for another great class and for sharing all that research and color mixes with us :)

I recently bought a new set of watercolors by Koh-I-Noor and decided to use this class to explore the colors a bit more. I have the "brilliant" set, (they have an "opaque" one as well with more muted colors) and I'm still adjusting to the vibrancy of this one... So this class was the perfect way to play around with my new colors.

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I used a reference image for the project. Here's the link to it at unsplash.com: https://unsplash.com/photos/ghj_rjQw8GQ

For the project - Icecream Cone - I decided to use the 'summer glow' palette.
