I love this tradition of Color of the Year! I always try to predict it, whenever it was red, I got it that time. I am not surprised at all that Violet is the color this year, its meditative, could be conservative but with this fuchsia undertone it has it has something more, something secret and sexy. I have used it in every painting lately, and I won't stop. Its so inviting. I gathered up a bunch of purple inspiration images from my "color" board. Enjoy lovers.
What do you think? Could you tell it was trending? In art school we had a great eclectic old teacher named Syliva and she really taught me about color. She said you could always predict what would trend commercially if you watched the Super Bowl! I did it once, and all of my predictions came true, crazy huh.
