Pantone Color of the Year


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.

  1. Oooh... Can you tell us more about making trend predictions based on the Super Bowl? (Or did you make that part up?) I'm guessing you would base your predictions on the subjects of the commercials? Also, what's the best way for someone who didn't go to art school to really "learn" about color?

    I hadn't thought about it until I read your post, but I should have known this color is trending. Duh! Almost all of the clothing, currently in stores, for little girls has this color! Thanks!

    1. totally not making that up! You watch the ads, what colors, textures, themes are repeating. Its pretty fun. I say buy some books on color theory, that should be fun learning.

  2. You wanna know something crazy? I always get really annoyed when my current color obsession becomes mainstream and popular. Like someone invaded my privacy. I hate it. And I just did a background for a new painting in lavender! Figures, doesn't it?

    1. I know! But then I think, have I been subtly influenced all this time, and thats why I like this color? Yes, but now that its mainstream, blah.
