Tuesday Huesday: Butterfly Canvas

Just got my August 2010 Anthropologie catalog in the mail. If you are a painter or crafter looking for inspiration, catalogs are a great resource!¬† Overall I thought the catalog was very muted (perhaps it was the photography), but I did see some color palettes I was drawn to.¬† One of them was used in this Butterfly Framed Art by Paule Marrot Editions, listed on page 27.¬† The colors are bright, but the way they are combined is so genius – the resulting design is beautiful and not overpowering.¬† Add some grays and/or blacks to tone it down and you’ll have a fun and pretty piece that won’t be screaming for attention¬†on your room walls.

This palette was created using Apple Barrel Acrylic colors (clockwise from upper left): Bright Red, Concord Grape, Pink Parfait, Aquamarine, Cool Blue
