Every moment of our lives we are surrounded by color. Color is everywhere. It has become therefore so naturally that we scarcely think about it. Our whole life we choose color, but mostly this happens unconsciously. The importance of the effect of color is often underestimatedIt is ‘a common thing’ and we are used to its appearance, maybe taken for granted, and we easily can forget about its beauty and the impact it has on our lives emotionally. It is however one of our senses and it deserves more attention. Making color swatches is one of my favorite things to get inspired before I start painting.
