Study with several Blues and Naples Yellow

Making color-studies makes me happy, I’ve made so many in the past while doing my study and research to become a color consultant. I have been attracted to colors as long as I know, and it soon became a passion. I always used to paint in a colorful way but I also love to change my interior from time to time, which could be once a month, ow yes. So when I started to think about color consultancy I focused on home color consulting. My creative part was using colors intuitively but that didn’t seem enough to me, I just wanted to know everything about color and how to use it in a way to create balanced interiors. Color is a phenomenon so I dived into the complex effects of color.
I learned about color psychology, color science, color physics and color theory. I did a lot of research and additional courses. In the end I came to the conclusion that what counts for me is the understanding of color. Perception is a dominant sense, and I was intrigued how colors interact with each other and how the individual colors affect us. So when having studied all these technical facts about color in general, I followed my own path, I started my color consultancy Koloristik combining my knowledge and personal experience to create successful solutions for clients.
So back to color studies, there are only 3 primary colors and we can mix numerous other colors, so when you are passionate there is a lot to discover. There is written so much about color already, it’s not my goal to do that, but what I dó love, is to make you aware of the effect of colors when using them in different combinations and hues and think about it a little bit more when using color, because it has such a great impact on our body and mind.

For the color study in blues and Naples Yellow I was inspired by Lilla Rogers from Make Art That Sells It was one of five mini assignments which was to help you get ready for the 2015 Global Talent Search. I just choose to do this one as it has my point of interest. And it was such fun to do!
