Color Palettes and Loomis
This week my students worked on a combination project - employing Loomis' informal compositional structure alongside identifying their personal color palettes. I've talked about color palettes a lot over the years. It's one of the puzzle pieces that helps a creator identify their personal style. By understanding what colors they are naturally drawn to (HA!), they can make conscious decisions to use those colors to create their personal style/look. I was so pleased with the results - better than I expected! And I put them in our Illustrators' Treehouse Display cabinet so that everyone can see!
I love showing off my students' works! I had them identify their own palettes, but also the palettes from some famous artists. The patterns that were revealed were really cool! But I liked the personal color palettes the best. Here's Izzy's... and Eli's... and Joy's... Groovy, eh?
