To see a couple of my "adventures" with color, you can read about my process for creating a palette from photos here and see what Color Geeks do for fun here.... if you dare....
We are covered in snow again and the sky seems a little gray, but even when things seem a little blah, there is color to be found:
I really wanted to get a pop of yellow in there, from the bird's beak, but the yellow in his beak is actually more of a muddy gold, and it just didn't "play well" with the other colors, though I tried and tried to make it work (I do not alter colors- it is my own little personal "rule" that I have to work with what is there). So I left out the yellow and went with warm grays and taupes found in the bird and snow:
I think this is my favorite- Mr. Woodpecker was very accommodating with his gorgeous red head and bits of blue in his wings... The snow also provided some nice light gray-blues:

When things seem a little dreary, where do you find color?? I think if I get out of the house in the next day or 2, some fresh flowers from the supermarket might be in order to liven things up. And maybe we'll start putting out a few things for Valentine's Day, to get a little rosiness into our lives.
Have a colorful day!
