To that end, the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2009 has a site that is inspiring, maybe influencing? and just plain interesting to check in on every so often. The Spring season palette is dripping with brilliant fuchsia, sunny yellow and a mouth watering lime that they're calling 'Dark Citron', great name~ and while those shades are not normally my comfort zone (to work in that is..Love to gaze at them) there is also a range of neutrals that calm my soul.
No yellow for me thank you very much. A little of that goes a long way in my book.
The upcoming fall/winter season color prediction is as expected, much more subdued ..
" A dark, shady range in a variety of inky tones. Touches of color electrify the palette. And to tone it all down: white and taupy or grayed shades." - Cosmoworlds
Personally, I really like the influence of metals that I'm seeing..works wonderfully with the metal clays that I want to get into more.
At any rate, this week I'm going to work differently.. I may even pull out some sunny school bus yellow.
