    My favorite color is aqua, so I’m loving the first photo A LOT. But I also really dig the gray and yellow together, too.

    The other combo I’m loving right now is peach, lavender, and brown together. So warm and spring-y.

      Thanks for sharing Brandi! I like to hear other people’s color combos, you never know when it might inspire a painting. 🙂

        I pretty much always have an opinion on color, and it’s usually “love!”. 😀

        But seriously, if you like colors and patterns, you should come join me over at COLOURlovers.com!! You can make your own color palettes, and even make your own patterns (thanks to a recent site revamp) or use a pre-made one (I’m a little obsessed with their plaids and stripes). Here’s my profile if you want to see more of what I’m talking about: http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/catiesblue

        P.S. I thought of another color combo I’m loving: purple and navy. I’m stuck on purple.

    Thanks for the recommendation Brandi! What do you use it for? inspiration? I looked at your site. It does look like fun.

      Inspiration, mostly. I like looking for new palettes for my jewelry.
