A written guide about focussing on the most meaningful colours to compliment your subject.

Limiting our palette may seem counter-intuitive when there is such a huge range of pastel colours available, all in beautiful and enticing colours. But have you ever found yourself stuck in a moment of indecision because there are just too many colours to choose from and you don’t know where to begin? Or working with a wide variety of colours then finding that your drawings have become too busy?

By practicing a bit of restraint and focussing on the colours that are going to be the most meaningful in depicting our subject we can make sure our choices work for and not against us. And as we gain confidence in our understanding of colour relationships it will help us to make bolder work in which all those luscious colours are given the best possible opportunity to shine.
