Colour inspiration from Kew Gardens

The other weekend we had family staying and the weather was really good so we decided to head off to Kew Gardens for a picnic and explore, which did not disappoint. There was just so many beautiful things to see and I loved it. I hadn't been since I was really young but I definitely want to go again soon. I think each season is quite different at Kew so it will be fun to go at different times of the year to see how the plants have changed. 

Anyway, as I was looking through all of the photos that I had taken I was really struck by the incredible colours. I am always on the hunt for interesting and beautiful colour palettes to use in my work so I thought it would be interesting to take some of my photos and put together some colour palettes from them.

I really enjoyed using these images as inspiration for colours and really like how some of the colour palettes came out. They are definitely the sort of thing that I would use in my work. I think what I might do over the next few weeks is pick one of these images each week and then create a bit of work using the colours that I chose. I will definitely share them here. I will probably experiment with some patterns and some hand lettering. 

I have been thinking recently that I want to create work that isn't for anything in particular but that is just about experimenting and having fun. 

Hope you are enjoying all the Autumn colours around at the moment. Happy Wednesday!
