Those of you who follow this blog know that I use Procreate app for iPad for all of my abstract compositions. One of its important tools is color palettes which can be used to coordinate and harmonize colors. It has been possible to customize and create new palettes in the past. It could be rather time consuming to do but with the recent update to the program they added a great feature. You can automatically create a new color palette just by using the built-in camera in the iPad. Whatever colors are in the camera’s view are captured in a 30 color palette. Here’s a new palette made by focusing on a poster of a Cezanne paining in my office.
The three abstracts below all use similar subject matter, mainly parallel lines, geometric and circular objects. They also share colors from the above palette. Some additional colors were gained by combining (mixing) layered colors in the blending mode in Procreate.
