When I used up my first watercolor set I was surprised by the colors that disappeared the quickest. They weren't my favorite colors. Funny, how could a color I didn't really like be a color that frequented my painting? I don't have a deep answer to that question but as I continue to paint, the colors I like in everyday life are not the colors that are used up the quickest on my paint palette. So I when I started to think of posting about my favorite colors I realized I have to break the post into two posts- colors I love and colors I love to paint with.
I love bright colors and rich, deep jewel tones.
My favorite color is pink and has been for a long time. I like a lot of shades of pink. Coral is a favorite and so it's fuschia-like hot pink but I also a traditional middle pink. The only pink I don't really like is powder pink but overall "pink is my signature color" :)
Blue was my favorite color when I was little and I still like it a lot. When I was little I cried because my cousin had a blue blanket and I had a yellow one.
I then loved coloring with cerulean blue crayons growing up. I didn't know how to pronounce cerulean, I learned that watching "The Devil Wears Prada" it was a light bulb moment "that's what the crayon is called!"
I don't know why but when fall rolls around I love the warmth of burnt orange. It's very crisp and homey.
What are you favorite colors?
